One of the coolest passes in Kyrgyzstan!

I was on a jeep tour and we went over the Tosor Pass! It was was not really easy but not so bad. The one thing that I would watch out for is if the weather gets bad. You are really exposed to the elements up there. In addition, if you have any type of jeep problems you are really in trouble. I'm looking forward to going back to this area again next summer!

Some people do it on bikes which must be amazing!

This nearly 4000 meter pass is what connects Naryn in the southwest to Lake Issyk Kol and Karakol to the northeast.
It is a mountain drive to remember. The best direction to travel is from Naryn because then you get the best views. The views along the exceptionally rough gravel road are drop dead gorgeous - from wide valley vistas, to stream filled lowlands, to magnificent glacier-peaked mountains.
The distance from Naryn to Torso, the village at the end of the road, is 125 miles and took 11 hours to traverse. We experienced every kind of weather on the trip - from sun, to fog, to snow, to hail. We crossed a number of rivers and streams and had to
break some new trails because of prior floods. It truly was a superb 4x4 adventure.
Just after reaching Torso Pass, and as you start your decent, you will marvelous glaciers and their pools right next to the road. It was an amazing sight!
This is a little traveled road to the "back of Beyond". During our drive, we passed only 11 cars, nine bicyclists and four hikers. Of course, we passed lots of animal herds
around the valleys - cattle, horse, sheep, goats and even a large herd of yaks.
I fully recommend this drive to anyone who wants to experience wild Kyrghystan in all its glory.

The best way to get to the Tosor Pass is by bike or a strong 4x4. The pass is at 3893 m. It can be very difficult to pass even in summer because of the snow covered trails and the bad path / road.
