A bumpy and grueling road to Regong La
Regong La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.016m (16,456ft) above the sea level, located in Namling County, a county of Shigatse in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.
The pass connects the Jomo Chu and Mang Chu valleys. The road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s 29.4km (18.26 miles) long, running west-east from Redangxiang to Suojinxiang.
The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 10% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 2 and 3 hours.
