Paso Icalma

Paso Icalma is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.307m above the sea level located on the border of Argentina and Chile.

The pass is also known as Paso de Coipocahue. Do not travel this pass in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. It has a well-deserved reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards, and driving under these conditions, can be extremely challenging. The road links the Neuquén Province in southwestern Argentina and the Región de La Araucanía, in Argentina. On the Argentinian side, the road to reach the summit is asphalted. It’s called Ruta Provincial 13. On the Chilean side, the road is called S61 and is gravel. Near the summit there’s a border station.
