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.
