Tera Pass

A memorable road trip to Tera Pass

Kotal-e Tirah is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.895m (9,498ft) above the sea level, located in Afghanistan.

The road to the summit was asphalted in 2006. It’s called Kabul - Gardez Hwy and it’s the primary route connecting Logar and Paktia provinces. The weather on this zone is harsh and highly unpredictable and it does not take much time for the bright sun shine to change over to moderate to heavy snow fall. The pass receives heavy snowfall during the winter months, often to the point of being impassable. Snow tends to persist into the summer months on the north-facing side of the mountain ridge.
