Alto de Pasa is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.123m (13,526ft) above the sea level, located in the central Andean valley of Ecuador.
The road to the summit is gravel. It’s very steep (up to 11%). This is a maintained road where a high clearance 2WD vehicle is able to travel safely at low speeds on long dry straight-of-ways, without losing control due to wash boarding, ruts, or dips. Muddy after rains. The road ends at Embalse Chiquiurco, a high mountain reservoir.
