  • Silk Road Mountain Race

    The Chinese highway is 80 kilometers of smooth tarmac until you reach the border control point at Torugart. Riders will reach speeds they had almost forgotten were possible on the flat. Beyond Torugart though, the road becomes a rough mud track along the eerie no man's land with China. Be warned that this whole area can be extremely dry so think carefully about your water needs until you reach CP2. This is the one section where it might be worth thinking about bringing extra water from Baetov as the climb out of town and descent to the highway can also be very dry. Once you leave the wide valley where Chatyr Kul lake is located and turn off towards CP2, the landscape changes quickly and riders will again be treated to stunning alpine views until they reach checkpoint 2.
