China / Central Asia - Karakorum Highway


Karakorum Highway, Chinese side that leads to Pakistan - highest road in the world passes through some of the most dramatic scenery - desert, glacier cut mountains, desolate valleys. Historically, this was a caravan trail, one branch of the ancient Silk Road. More recently, the Chinese and Pakistani governments have built a highway. It is the highest border crossing in the world, over 4800 metres (roughly 16,000 feet) at the Khunjerab Pass at the border.
