Courage is required to drive to Dzi La

Dzi La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.799m (15,744ft) above the sea level, located in Sêrxü County, in the Garzê Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in the northwest of Sichuan Province, China.

Set high in the Ngonkhori mountain range, the road to the summit is unpaved. A 4x4 vehicle is recommended. The road is not easy, with countless turns and twists. The pass is 75.1 km (46.66 miles) long, running north-south from Sêrxü (on G345 road) to Luoxuzhen. Running parallel to S456 road, the road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 16% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
