Kyzylart Pass is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 4,280 m (14,042 ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
The road over the pass, also known as Kyzyl Art, is gravel and very rough. It’s called M41 or Pamir Highway. Throughout the area, the land is typically rugged and dry.
Due its unique location and the climb in elevation over thousands of feet, and passing through remote areas, it is important when driving in these conditions to be prepared. The pass is located in the Trans-Alay Range. To describe the Tajik border control at the Kyzyl-Art Pass as desolate would be an understatement.
