Pereval Kara-Buura is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.301m (10,830ft) above the sea level, located in the Talas Region of Kyrgyzstan.
The road to the summit, also known as Pereval Karabura, Pereval Karabury and Pereval Kara-bora, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice.
Located in the Çatkalskie mountain range, there are sheer drops virtually along the entire route and enough hairpins (more than 30) to make a whirling dervish dizzy. The most challenging part of the route is the Kara-kysmak river bridge. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. 4x4 required. The road is pretty narrow.
