Torugart Pass to Naryn

After a month in China we left Kashgar for the drive into Kyrgyzstan via the Torugart Pass at 12310 feet. This road, unpaved but in fair condition, was built in 1906 but closed between 1969 and 1983 due to tensions between China and the USSR (of which Kyrgyzstan was a part) which saw this area being a potential war zone.
