Kurtatinsky Pass

Kurtatinsky Pass: a truly outstanding 4x4 adventure to the summit

Pereval Kurtatinskiy is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.297m (10,816ft) above the sea level, located in Alagirsky District, North Ossetia–Alania Republic of Russia.

Tucked away in the Caucasus Range, within the Reka Zakka Valley, the rough road to the summit is totally unpaved, windy, and exposed. It’s an access service road drivable by a capable 4WD vehicle only. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. It is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years.

The summit is crowned with communication towers and the views from the top are incredible. The climb is wild. Starting from Abaytikau, south of the peak, the road to the summit is 5.4 km (3.35 miles) long. Over this distance, the average gradient is 19,6%, hitting a defiant 29.8% through some of the ramps.
