So far away


Khunjerab-Pass, elevation 4693 metres (15397 ft), border Pakistan - China, May 2009

We crossed the Khunjerab-Pass by bus on our way from Islamabad to Bejing. It took us around two days from Gilgit in Pakistan to Kashgar in China. The Karakorum Highway is a road permanent under construction and only passable between May and November. We got stuck at a landslide for some hours. This mountains are really far way.

From Wikipedia: Khunjerab Pass is a high mountain pass in the Karakorum Mountains on the northern border of Gilgit-Baltistan and the Xinjiang Autonmous Region of China. The highest paved border crossing in the world and the highest point on the Karakoram Highway.
