The road to the pass has a few paved kms but is mostly unpaved. However it has a good surface and very little traffic. The pass is isolated for 7-8 months during the winter due to excessive snowfall. There are plenty of hairpin turns. The pass road is 32.4 km (20.13 miles) long, running east-west from Shargole to Batambis.
