Shah Tigh Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.316m (10,879ft) above the sea level, located in Daykundi province, in the central part of Afghanistan. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs.
The road to the summit, also known as Shah Tigh Pass, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. If you do choose this route please check up to date information due to the security situation. Obviously you would have to really (!) check what is going on now. You might want to contact your embassy in Kabul as they have really the best info about terrorist attacks, ongoing armed conflict, risk of kidnapping and high crime rate. The road is extremely narrow, impassable for 2 cars at the same time.
