Taking on the Twists and Turns of Road S202
S202 is the name of a high mountain road located in the southeastern part of Tibet Autonomous Region in People's Republic of China.
The road is totally paved, and pretty straight, with many steep parts. It’s 224 km (139 miles) long running north-south from Shannan, also transliterated from Tibetan as Lhoka, to Cona, north of disputed India-Tibet border demarcated by the Line of Actual Control.
The road tops out at 5.119m (16,794ft) above the sea level, by Shobo La. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 6 and 7 hours.
