Torugart Pass

The Chinese side of Torugart Pass is a forlorn, high altitude desert landscape where perhaps the border guards have been sent in punishment for indiscretions in more hospitable climes. However, on literally rounding a corner after the no man’s land on the way into Kyrgyzstan, you’ll find the Kyrgyz guards enjoying much more salubrious scenery; lush green mountain meadows undulate away to the horizon, like a cinematic idyll or dramatic extrapolation of a child’s drawing. You’ll be smiling and breathing in deep while setting up camp with this soul-lifting treat spread before you, and the rest of stunning Kyrgyzstan beyond.
