the world's most spectacular roads

Kulma Pass is an international high mountain pass, at an elevation of 4,362 m (14,311 ft) above the sea level, located across the Pamir Mountains, on the China–Tajikistan border.

The road over the pass is asphalted. It’s called Asian Highway AH66 and it links the city of Murgab in Tajikistan and the Karakorum Highway in China. It can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow.

  

The pass, also called Qolma Pass, links the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region of Tajikistan and the Xinjiang Autonomous Region of China. The pass is only open to Tajiks and Chinese citizens, despite news to the contrary. The road was officially opened on May 25, 2004.
