Pereval Chapchyma is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.841m (9,320ft) above the sea level, located in Jalal-Abad Region of Kyrgyzstan. The climb is a series of narrow zigzags, with some impressive drops to the valley below.
The road to the summit is gravel, dusty, bumpy and dangerous. Your wheels will be astounded at the wonderful views of the mountains spread out before you! They are terrible for drivers who are prone to vertigo. The road is very steep. You'll feel like leaning into the car and away from the edge. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. The pass links the villages of Kurulush and Terek-Say. Usually, the pass is open from May through November. The pass is one of the most treacherous mountain drives of the country.
