Shobo La

Take the Scenic Route and Discover Shobo La

Shobo La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.119m (16,794ft) above the sea level, located in Qusum County, a county under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Shannan in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

The defiant road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called Road S202. The road is totally paved, and pretty straight, with many steep parts. It’s 224 km (139 miles) long running north-south from Shannan, also transliterated from Tibetan as Lhoka, to Cona, north of disputed India-Tibet border demarcated by the Line of Actual Control.
Located to the south of Yarto Drak La, at this elevation Shobo La is the highest point on the road. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 6 and 7 hours.
