Yshtyk, pass. On the A364 from Barskoon to Ak-Shyrak. This road used to be one of the routes of the Silk Road, passing over the Bedel Pass (4284 m) into China. In Soviet times the road turned East along the upper Naryn River and looped round over the Yshtyk Pass (3689 m) to Ak-Shyrak, Enilchek and eventually back to the city of Karakol. Unfortunately, some of the bridges are now down and the road, (never an easy route), is no longer passable. Top
