the world's most spectacular roads


A27 is a major route in Kazakhstan. An epic road trip linking the Russian border and Aktobe.

The road is mostly asphalted. It’s 900 km long and connects Kotyaevka (a small village situated on the right bank of the Kigash River in the Kurmangazy District of Atyrau Region) on the Russian border and Aktobe, a city on the Ilek River in the Aktobe Region. The road is in very bad state. 70 % of the asfalt isnt there anymore. Is is not a problem to pass , but with low speed <60kmh.
The road is in dreadful condition. The road is difficult and it’s a nightmare in the wet or dark (or both). Potholes are common, and are often dangerously deep. Do not travel this pass in severe weather conditions. Special caution should be taken if driving at night. It’s especially treacherous at night or during poor weather.
