Bike Touring Highlight
Planned by Silk Road Mountain Race
One of the biggest passes of the race, Tosor towers above lake Issyk-Kul. It’s not the single hardest pass of the race but it is definitely one that should not be underestimated. The likelihood of bad weather is increased by the proximity of Issyk-Kul lake to the north. Last year some riders were caught in particularly violent rain and snowstorms. Like many Kyrgyz passes it has a tendency to get progressively steeper and the top is barren and rocky with snow to be seen year round.
