Khojak Pass

Khojak Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.201m (7,221ft) above the sea level, located in Qilla Abdullah District of Balochistan province, Pakistan.

The road to the summit is asphalted but very steep, with some hairpin turns. It’s called N25. The road through the pass connects Qila Abdullah with Chaman. There are sheer drops virtually along the entire route and enough hairpins to make a whirling dervish dizzy. This route is not recommended if your passengers are prone to car sickness.
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 is famous today for the 3.91 km (2.43 mi) railway tunnel built in the British Era (1888-1891). The pass is also famous for its picturesque scenery. It has a well-deserved reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards, and driving under these conditions, can be extremely challenging.
