Driving the curvy road to the summit of Shera La

Shera La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.563m (18,251ft) above the sea level, located on the boundary of Comai and Lhozhag counties, in the Shannan Prefecture of Tibet, in China. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

Shera La

Set high to the east of Puma Yumco lake, the road to the summit, also known as Maesar La,  is totally unpaved. It’s 82.7 km (51.38 miles) long running west-east from G219 Road to Comai Town. The road is usually impassable in winters.

The drive is very steep, hitting a 9% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. If your ideal road trip involves getting way off the beaten track then this is the drive for you.
