Kyrk-Kyz pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.222m (10,570ft) above the sea level, located in Naryn Province, in the east of Kyrgyzstan.
The road to the Summit, known as Pereval Kyrk-Kyz, is unpaved. It can be impassable anytime due its extreme risk of rock slides. 4wd vehicle (high clearance) required. The pass is located on the road between Kyzyl-Oi (A-367 Road) and Toluk villages. Some people drive this road on ATV’s.
Never drive this trail alone. It suffers the harsh meteorological conditions of the area every winter. On the road you’ll cross hills and pastures and you’ll meet nomads and yurts on the way.
