The Moldo-Ashuu Pass

The Moldo-Ashuu pass is one of the most extreme passes in Kyrgyzstan. It is especially popular among fans of traveling by bicycle and car. Both those and others love it for the seven-level winding serpentine, which seems to challenge fans of adrenaline and drive. Moldo-Ashuu is located in the Naryn region, through it one of the roads leads to the famous Son-Kol Lake. For the Tien Shan and Pamir mountains, the height of the pass is usual - about 3243 meters, but it is not at all easy to conquer it. The ascent to the pass is very steep, most of the way is often hidden by clouds or thick white fogs, so each new turn is always a surprise and a mystery. According to many travelers, the pass is rightfully considered one of the most picturesque in Kyrgyzstan. From the top, fabulous views of the ice caps of the mountains, slopes overgrown with tall fir trees, flowering valleys and mountain rivers beautifully winding between the hills open up.
