Kanda Shan Pass

Kanda Shan Pass is a truly outstanding 4x4 adventure

Kanda Shan Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.656m (15,275ft) above the sea level, located in Nangqên County of the Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, the southernmost county-level division of Qinghai province, in China.

Bordering the Tibet Autonomous Region to the south, the road to the summit, also known as Yega La, is totally unpaved and features 12 switchbacks and countless turns. It is very steep, hitting a 12% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
The road is 49.6km (30.82 miles) long, running west-east from Kanda Village to Maozhuangxiang. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 3 and 4 hours. This road offers jaw-dropping views, unparalleled freedom, and lots of fresh air. The views will linger on our minds long after we've left those places.
