Planned by Silk Road Mountain Race
It may not look like much on the map but this section of the route is one of our favourites and features some of the most stunning views of the entire race. Be sure to look over your shoulder as you reach the summit of the climb shortly after Baetov. The rippling canyons and foothills are truly a sight to behold. After another descent riders will reach the smooth, Chinese built tarmac of the main road to China from Naryn.
