Zodskij pereval

The paved mountain road to Sotk Pass

Pereval Zodskij is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.374m (7,788ft) above the sea level, located on the Azerbaijan-Armenia border.

The road to the pass, also known as Zod, Zodskiy or Sotk, was paved in 2017. It is pretty steep with countless hairpin turns. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. The pass links the villages of Sotk (in the Gegharkunik Province of Armenia) on the M11 road and Qamışlı (in the Kalbajar Rayon of Azerbaijan). The pass lies atop a rocky hill of debris dumped over the edge of the mountain by huge mining trucks. The border is not open for non-citizen.
