Sikhote-Alin Pass

The road to the summit is totally paved. It’s a remote drive through the Sikhote-Alin State Natural Biosphere Reserve. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery. The road features steep sections.

Set high in the Sikhote-Alin Mountains, the pass road is 321km (200 miles) long, running east-west from Vanino, the administrative center of the district to Lidoga.
