Irkeshtam Pass

Irkeshtam Pass lies on the border of China and Kyrgyzstan and is currently enjoying an atmosphere of mutual understanding and trust between the two strong allies. Irkeshtam Pass in Kyrgyzstan is positioned in a locale of unparalleled beauty.
Irkeshtam Pass of Kyrgyzstan is a place where tourists technically do not require any government documents to pass over on any side. Irkeshtam Pass at Kyrgyzstan offers the shortest route to China from Tajikistan and Uzbekistan and thus has enjoyed extensive repair work until 1999 when the armed insurgency endangered the peace in the area.

The asphalt road till Sary Tash gives way to a stone cobbled road, which is notorious for accidents, but all the hardships are compensated by the stunning scenario of imposing mountains and meadows with a mosaic of spectacular range of green - forest green, spring green and yellow green. All coming together to produce scenery any viewer is unlikely to forget in a hurry.

Since a long time in its history the Irkeshtam pass was ajar merely for commercial goods trade for a restricted interval each month, despite plans of opening it for passenger traffic. Finally in the summer of 2002 these plans came to be consummated.
