Yakexia Snow Mountain
Yakexia Snow Mountain is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.306m (14,127ft) above the sea level, located in Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, in northwestern Sichuan, China.
The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s called 302 Provincial Road (S302). The pass lies about 400km NW of Chengdu between Heishui and Rangkou. 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 hardest part of the climb was bypassed by a tunnel. The zone is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions.
