Pereval Tong is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.012m (13,162ft) above the sea level, located in Issyk-Kul Region in north-eastern Kyrgyzstan. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
Located within the Tian Shan Mountains range, the road to the summit is rocky and gravel. Extreme risk of rock slides. Large, sharp rocks require tight maneuvering, increasing the likelihood of tire damage. High clearance, skid plates and differential lockers required. No stock vehicles. A complex network of poorly defined roads makes route-finding very difficult, even following a GPS tracklog. Never drive this trail alone. It’s usually impassable from November to June. On a car you can almost reach the pass. But the last 2 km are destroyed by avalanches and dirt slides. You can reach the summit only by foot.
