Da Xue Shan pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.337m (14,229ft) above the sea level, located in Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, in northwestern Yunnan province, China.
The road to the summit, also known as Da Xue Shan pass, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s called 217 Provincial Road (S217). The pass lies 140km north of Zhongdian (Shangri La) on the way to Litang. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. Great ride through wide pine tree forest. Beautiful rocky mountains all around. The zone is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions.
