Gydzhen Pass

Gydzhen Pass: The Ultimate Road Trip Guide

Gydzhen Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.988m (13,083ft) above the sea level, located in Akto County, in Kizilsu Kyrgyz Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China.

Set high in the Kunlun mountain range, the road to the summit is totally paved and navigable by all passenger vehicles. The drive offers stunning views that will linger on your mind long after you've left those places, creating beautiful memories.

Starting at Shale Kezi, the road to the summit is about 35km (21.7 miles) long. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery.
