Riadong La

Travel guide to the top of Riadong La

Riadong La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.005m (16,420ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Zadoi and Zhidoi counties, in Yushu Prefecture of Qinghai, in China.

Set high in the remote Qiajajima mountain range between the Mekong and Yangtze rivers, the recently built road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called S224 road.

Situated just above the Angqiansong river, the pass is 198km (123 miles) long running from Zhidoi to Zadoi. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 8 and 9 hours.
