Xuemenkan pass

The road to the summit, located in the Yajiageng Mountains, is a newly-built asphalted highway. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time. Driving at night, or in poor visibility, is not recommended for drivers unfamiliar with the road. The pass divides Minya Konka massif to southwest and Lamoshe massif to northeast. This route is not recommended if your passengers are prone to car sickness. Don’t stuff your belly too much. Eventually, you might feel vomiting temptations. Expect a road pretty steep. It has a toilet at the top.
