Gyu La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.550m (14,927ft) above the sea level, located in northern India’s Jammu and Kashmir state.
The road to the summit, located in the Himalayas, is asphalted. Its many twists, turns and narrows can pose a challenge to even the most experienced drivers. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time. The high elevation with its risk of altitude sickness, weather concerns, steep road grade and overall inaccessibility make the travel dangerous and difficult. 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.
