Travel guide to the top of Wahusi Pass
Wahusi Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.456m (14,619ft) above the sea level, located on the boundary of Tianjun County (Haixi Prefecture) and Qilian County (Haibei Prefecture) of Qinghai Province, in China.
Set high in the Qilian range, the road to the summit is totally unpaved and not numbered. Attempting it in anything but a High-Clearance, preferably 4-wheel drive vehicle is a recipe for disaster.
Located to the north-east of Hala Lake, the road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 10% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Starting at Yanglongxiang (on S204 Road), the ascent is 31.2 km (19.38 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 1.097 meters. The average gradient is 3.51%.
