the world's most spectacular roads

Dalani pass

Dalani pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.443m (8,015ft) above the sea level, located in the Kurdistan Province, Iran. The pass lies close to the border of Iran-Iraq and is traversed by Route 15. 

The road to the summit is called Route 15. It includes gravel and asphalt sections. The road links Marivan and Paveh, via Howraman Valley. The road that runs through the beautiful valley, which is only paved for about half of its length, gives a good insight into the traditional Kurdish life in the small villages.

It is a spectacular road through a beautiful area. Any barriers along the edge afford little more than token protection; large stretches should be taken at a snail's pace and a lookout kept for vehicles coming from the opposite direction!

  

It’s a real challenging road and a true test of your vehicle and your stamina because the road abounds in twists and turns with wheels sometimes hanging above the precipice. The environment becomes more and more spectacular from pass to pass. The road has a lot of hairpin turns. Portions of the road may be temporarily impassable due to road work or inclement weather. In any case, driving 4WD is recommended due to uneven surface.
