Haji Pir Pass

Haji Pir Pass, a Road Through History

Haji Pir Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.640m (8,661ft) above the sea level, located in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan, near the Indian border.

Located on the western fringe of the Pir Panjal Range in the Inner Himalayan region, the road to the summit is unpaved. It’s located on the road between Poonch (the capital of Poonch district, in the Indian union territory of Jammu and Kashmir) and Uri (a town in the Baramulla district, in the Indian union territory of Jammu and Kashmir).
The road is hairpinned and usually impassable in winters. The pass was captured by the Indian Army in the 1965 war but returned to Pakistan five months after its capture due to international pressure.
