List of all mountain roads

The Kara-Keche Ashuu pass is one of 4 passes up leading to the Son-Kul Lake. The Son-Kul is a Lake at about 3,000 meters above sea level. Each of the individual pass roads has its own characteristics and has magnificent panoramic views.

The other three passes are the Moldo Ashuu pass, Terskey Torpok Ashuu pass and Kalmak-Ashuu pass. The gravel road up to the pass is the worst of the four passes roads. Nevertheless, the ride is up one of the most fascinating of all four.
