Men La

The road to Men La in the Tibet is not for the sissies

Men La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.265m (13,992ft) above the sea level, located in Zayul County, in the Nyingchi Prefecture in the southeastern part of the Tibet Autonomous Region, China.

The curvy road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s 11.8 km (7.33 miles) long, running north-south from the G219 road to Meixue. The drive is steep, hitting an 8% of maximum gradient through some the ramps.
