Chugyu La

A rough 4x4 road to Chugyu La

Chugyu La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.415m (14,484ft) above the sea level, located in Tingri County, under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Xigazê in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

Set high between the valleys of Bum Chu and Kharda Chu, the challenging road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s 17.1 km (10.62 miles) long, running south-north from Kedong to Chicun.
A 4x4 vehicle is required. Mount Everest is visible from the summit. The road to the summit is brutally steep, hitting a 25% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
