Bechenagskiy Pereval

Bechenagskiy Pereval

The Betschenagsku Pass is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.346m (7,696ft) above the sea level, located on the Azerbaijan- Armenia border.

The road to the summit is asphalted. It’s called M-13 (Armenia) and R49 (Azerbaijan). It’s pretty steep. There are sheer drops virtually along the entire route and enough hairpins to make a whirling dervish dizzy. This route is not recommended if your passengers are prone to car sickness. The pass links the villages of Shaghat is (in the Syunik Province of Armenia) and  Biçənək (in the Shahbuz District of Nakhchivan in Azerbaijan).
