The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy. The best time to go to Uzungol is during July-August. Be prepared for the cold and wind! High winds blow here all year long. 4x4 vehicle required. Expect a trail pretty steep. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with dangerous dropoffs. Extremely low oxygen for engine combustion. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
