the world's most spectacular roads

M32 (Aral-Highway)

M32 is a main highway in Kazakhstan, with a total length of 2.046km. The road starts in the border with Russia and after 40 hours driving, the road ends in the border with Kyrgyzstan. 

The Aral Highway starts near Oral (or Uralsk), a city in northwestern Kazakhstan, at the confluence of the Ural and Chogan Rivers close to the Russian border and ends in Shymkent,  the capital city of South Kazakhstan Province, the most populated region in Kazakhstan. The M32 in Kazakhstan looks as though it has been carpet-bombed on a daily basis since Christmas. You cannot drive on much of it; you must dive into the desert and drive parallel, and take your chances with the sand tracks. The road has not protections or guardrails. It's part of the European Route 38.The surface of the road is mostly asphalted. Chains or snow tyres can be required anytime. This trail passes through remote areas, so you need to be prepared. It has a well-deserved reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards, and driving under these conditions, can be extremely challenging.
