Karmir Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.184m (7,165ft) above the sea level, located in the Gegharkunik Province of Armenia, near Azerbaijan.
The road to the summit is asphalted. It’s called H30. This is an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains. The road surface is good and one can see, along the length of the lake's edge, numerous rusty remains of worksites abandoned since the time of the fall of the Soviet system. The weather is unpredictable here, and if you are driving along a dry autumn road it doesn’t mean that in 300 metres you won’t get in winter with snow-covered mountains and hills and snow glistening like diamonds.
