Mamisoni Pass, at an elevation of 2.836m (9,304ft) above the sea level, is a high mountain pass located in the border between Georgia and Russia. It's one of the highest roads of Europe.
The road to reach the pass (also called Mamison Pass) is tightly hairpinned and bumped, an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains. The pass is traversed by the North Ossetian Military Road, a highway that links Kutaisi (Georgia) with Alagir (North Ossetia, Russian Federation). The pass, the highest driveable by 4x4 cars in Georgia, is open only some months due to heavy snowfalls, and it’s located in the central Greater Caucasus crest, and the place where the geographical border between Europe and Asia lies. Near the summit, at an elevation of 2,847m above the sea level, there’s a meteo station.
