Kyrgyzstan roads first week November

Post by Christopher »

Hello - am planning on driving (own 4WD) from Osh to Almaty over 5 days, in the first week of November. Is it possible to drive via Narin and lake Isik-Kol? Or has the snow set in? What are the alternatives - via Toktogul and Bishkek, over the 3184m Alabel pass? or detour through Tashkent and Shymkent? Thanks for any tips!

These are all main roads. They will be cleared after big snowfall, so no issue.

The Kazarman pass is cleared regularly in the winter?

Oh sorry, I skipped over the fact that he is starting from Osh. In this case, you are right. Kazarman pass is not cleared in winter. Osh-Bishkek and Naryn-Bishkek are cleared.
