The road to Toom Pass, pure adventure
Toom Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.232m (7,322ft) above the sea level, located in the Khövsgöl Province of northern Mongolia.
Nestled in the Khoridol Saridag mountain range, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle required. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common. The road to the summit is 109.9 km long, running east-west from Hatgal’s paved road close to Hatgal center towards Ulaan Ull. The pass is the highest point of the road.
High winds blow here all year long. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find. The road to the top is pretty steep. The drive is not very scenic. It’s mostly used by locals. The summit is home to a hotel.
