Travel guide to the top of Peacock Mountain Pass
Kongque Shan Yakou (Peacock Mountain Pass) is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.891m (12,765ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Nujiang and Dêqên Prefectures, in Yunnan Province, China.
The road to the summit is mostly unpaved. It’s called S318. The drive is pretty challenging, with steep sections and about 50 sharp hairpin turns. A 4x4 vehicle is recommended.
The pass is 96.6 km (60 miles) long running east-southwest, from S237 road towards Pengdangxiang (a village in Gongshan Derung and Nu Autonomous County). If you’re prone to car sickness, avoid it. Plan about 2.5 hours to complete the drive without any stop. If your ideal road trip involves getting way off the beaten track then this is the drive for you.
