Kūh-e Takht Pass

Driving the wild Kūh-e Takht Pass

Kūh-e Takht Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.601m (8,533ft) above the sea level, located in Kermanshah Province, Iran.

The road to the summit is paved but narrow and steep. It’s called Road 15. The route is dangerous. Not recommended to newbies. Along the way you’ll have to deal with some dangerous dropoffs. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery.

It’s a difficult road, with uncountable turns and twists. The road to the summit is 53.0 km long with 37 hairpin turns. It runs north-south from Dezli, village in Dezli Rural District, in the Central District of Sarvabad County, Kurdistan Province towards Nowsud, a city in Nowsud District, Paveh County, Kermanshah Province.
