Jingyangling Pass is worth the white-knuckle drive
Jingyangling Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.770m (12,368ft) above the sea level, located on the boundary between Qilian and Menyuan Hui counties of Qinghai Province, in the Haibei Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of China.
Set high in the Qilian Mountains, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called G227. It’s a challenging curvy road, with hairpin turns. This route is not recommended if your passengers are prone to car sickness. This road is usually impassable from late October through late June or early July (depending on snow). The open and close dates all depend on snowmelt and snowfall each year.
The road to the summit is very steep, hitting an 8% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. The pass is 67.9km (42.19 miles) long, running from Ebuzhen to Yaocaoliang.
