About Razdan Pass:
Razdan Pass is the highest point between Bandipora in North Kashmir and Gurez Valley. It is situated at an altitude of 11,624 ft, and connects Gurez Valley to the rest of the state. It was once an integral part of the Silk Route, between Kashmir and Central Asia, but today it is barely used. In fact, due to its proximity to the Line of Control (LOC), it was not accessible to tourists before.
Razdan Pass is considered as one of the most dangerous yet beautiful roads in the world, offering breathtaking views of the mountains and gorges. Its fast icy winds, sheer drop offs and frequent snow accumulation make a ride on this road, nothing short of a natural adventure sport.

Why Visit Razdan Pass?
Razdan Pass offers a thrilling 3-hour ride to adrenaline junkies, unparalleled views of the Kashmir Valley, which will make you swoon. It is also the Gateway to Gurez Valley, one of the most beautiful destinations in Kashmir.
The Peer Baba Shrine, just a few kilometers before Razdan Pass, is a must visit place, as much for its spiritual vibes, as the 360-degree view of the mountains it affords.
