This is a must do for all nature enthusiasts and outdoor lovers. The scenery is magnificent with many photo opportunities. The ice waterfall is especially an interesting place to stop. Service at both border posts are effective and friendly.

Wow! The most amazing views - you actually don't want to be on this road if it's snowing - it's tough terrain, a number of rivers/wet spots you're driving through. You need a passport to get right to the top. Boarder control is a just...More

Awesome trip up Sani Pass, we were in two 4x4, Toyota and Mitsubishi - both handled some snow and a few patches of ice with ease. The views are spectacular and there were so many waterfalls in the mountains - photographers paradise. I would recommend...More
