Debo La

Dare to drive the dangerous Debo La

Debo La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.178m (16,988ft) above the sea level, located in Gê'gyai County, in Ngari Prefecture of the Tibet Autonomous Region, China. 

The remote road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle recommended. The pass is 150 km (93 miles) long, running from Gejizhen to Xungba. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common. The drive is steep, hitting a 9% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find.
