Kōtal-e Shibar

Kōtal-e Shibar

Shibar Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.000m (9,843ft) above the sea level, located in the Koh-e-Baba mountains of central Afghanistan.

The road over the pass is mostly paved. It’s called Bamiyan Charikar Hwy (A77) and it can be closed anytime because the snow. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. You might want to take this into consideration if you have passengers that don't like heights. Be prepared, this road is not for the faint of heart or ill prepared. One mistake can have serious consequences.
