Google Earth Plug-in: Border China-Kyrgyzstan (Torugart Pass)

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The Torugart Pass is a pass in the Tian Shan mountain range. Elevation: 3,752 m (12,310 ft).

The pass is the main border crossing between the People's Republic of China (Xinjiang province) and Kyrgyzstan. The nearest large Chinese city is Kashgar, the nearest Kyrgyz city is Naryn. The road on the Kyrgyz side, from Torugart to Naryn and then to Balykshy and Bishkek, is narrow and in winter often impassable due to heavy snow and frequent avalanches, so that transport and trade between Kyrgyzstan and China are difficult and costly. The People's Republic of China is now considering to build a railway linking Kyrgyzstan to Kashgar.
