Planned by Silk Road Mountain Race
Kok-Airyk pass is the final challenge of the race. It’s another 3800 meter pass, but with a road that is heavily damaged and hasn’t been passable by car for several years. Riders will need to pick their way over many sections where rockfall and landslides make riding impossible. We must also warn you that the same goes for quite a lot of the descent… It won’t be an easy finish to the race. That being said, the view down onto Issyk-Kul lake, where the mountains on the opposite shore are clearly visible on a clear day, really is something special. By the time riders make it down to the shore of the lake, they'll be only a short cruise on the main road from a well deserved beer or two at the finish line in Cholpon Ata!
