Sinan Pass, a curvy road only for experienced drivers
Sinan Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.397m (7,864ft) above the sea level, located in Aseer (Asīr) Region, in southwest Saudi Arabia.
Nestled in the Asir Mountain Range, the road to the summit (also known as Talaa Pass) is paved in very poor conditions. It’s narrow with hundreds of turns. A very wonderful place with fantastic views of towering mountains. The drive is dangerous and extremely technical. Not recommended to automatic cars. Use low gears going down.
4x4 recommended due its steepness. Many accidents occurred due to brakes failure. The road is very steep. Starting from Al Magarda, the ascent is 12.9 km (8.01 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 1657 meters. The average gradient is 12.84%.
