The road to the summit is very challenging with uncountable turns, twists and hundreds of hairpin turns. Ideal time to travel is daylight. Not adviced night drive. The pass is 122 km (75 mile) long, running east-west from Ramban to Baddar. The road is never too steep (4,6% of average gradient). Most of the time, the road is accessible by passenger car and RV. If you're afraid of heights, it's probably best to keep your eyes forward.
