Torugart pass

Naryn Region Kyrgyzstan
Border Crossings

The Torugart Pass is the most marked passage between Kyrgyzstan and China. Travelers and merchants cross this passage more than 2000 years ago. On the Kyrgyz side, the caravanserai of Tash Rabat is the stopping point for spending the night before the day that will take you to Kashgar. The passage is heavily controlled, especially on the Chinese side, and your trip must be organized with local tour operators. The pass is open all year, but is closed on weekends (Saturday and Sunday), and when there is heavy snowfall. The opening hours, Monday to Friday, are from 10:00 to 17:00, but plan to spend the morning before 12:00. Leaving Kashgar in the morning, you will also arrive in the late afternoon in Tash Rabat or directly in Naryn.
