Located within the Bargooshat mountain range, the road to the summit, also known as Bargushat 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.
The road to the summit is brutally steep. Starting from Kitsk (Kirs), a village in the rural community of Geghi, the ascent is 5.02 km (3.12 mi) long.

Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road.
