Kyrgyzstan: Ala-Bel Pass

Ala-Bel Pass is the highest mountain Pas on the main Kyrgyz road linking Bishkek and Osh. The high pass is at an elevation of 3,175m (10,416ft) above sea level, and is located in the Talas Ala-Too mountain range. Lush and green in summer, this time of the year it’s a total winter wonderland with knee-deep snow and complete snow cover on all the surrounding peaks.
