Kamchik Pass

The Kamchik Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.306m (7,565ft) above the sea level, located in the Qurama Mountains in eastern Uzbekistan.

The road to reach the pass is asphalted, but there are rough sections where the asphalt has disappeared. It’s called A373. The old road over the pass was bypassed by a tunnel built in 1999. On the horizon the snow-capped peaks of the Fan Mountains come into view.
The pass is located in the Fergana Valley between the Tashkent and Namangan Regions. Heavy vehicles and minivans are not permitted to cross the pass. Approximately 10,000 to 15,000 vehicles travel through the Kamchik Pass each day. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, mudslides, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice.
