Namja La

Namja Pass, a trade route between Mugu and Tibet

Namja La is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.005m (16,420ft) above the sea level, located on the Nepal-China border.

Located in the Himalayas mountain range, the road to the summit is unpaved. 4x4 vehicles only. The pass links the village of Mugu in the Karnali Zone of north-western Nepal and Zhongba County in the west of China's Tibet Autonomous Region. The pass is actively used for trade between Mugu and Tibet. The road, opened by China, is only passable in August. It starts a few kilometres beyond Mugu and runs northwards into Tibet.
