Badawi Pass is a difficult road for experienced drivers only

Is the road to Badawi Pass unpaved?
The rugged road to the summit, also known as Do Teer Pass, Badgoi Pass, and Badogai Pass, is entirely unpaved. It’s called Utrar-Dir Road. Be prepared; this road is not for the faint of heart or ill-prepared. The top of the pass, marked by the two-faced hill, offers scenic views of both the Swat and Dir Kohistan sides. A 4x4 vehicle with high clearance is required. Expect a trail that is pretty steep, with sections up to 29 percent. Drive with care, as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous drop-offs.
How long is the road to Badawi Pass?
The pass is 42.7 km (26.53 miles) long, running west-east from Kalkot to Utror. The pass links Upper Dir District and Utror & Kalam.
Is Badawi Pass open in winters?
Set high on the border between Kumrat Valley and Kalam Valley, in the northwestern part of the country, the road is usually impassable from November through June.
