the world's most spectacular roads

 

Zodskij pereval is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.420m above the sea level, on the Azerbaijan and Armenia border.

The road to the pass, also known as Zod, Zodskiy or Sotk, is gravel. The road is really in bad condition, possible only with a SUV, though it is already under development. The road is very rough--only try driving it in a 2wd car, if you're planning to buy a new car. It’s strongly recommended not to try with regular car! Some holes are very dangerous there.

 

The road is pretty steep. The surface of the road is gravel with countless hairpin turns. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice.

  

The pass lies atop a rocky hill of debris dumped over the edge of the mountain by huge mining trucks. The border is not open for non-citizen. The surface on this gravel road is often loose, especially along the sides of the road.  This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
