China #2

On the border between Pakistan and China, May 2009.

All this people are from our bus and we had to wait for the first border control. Not easy at the heights of 4693 metres (15397 ft). We felt dissy.
Before I posted some information about this border at the Khunjerab Pass. See here.

The road to Kashgar.

Typical houses in the far west of the autonomous region Xinjiang.

The Karakoram Highway is for me one of the most interesting roads of the world. Really worth the effort.

A sandstorm in Tashkurgan. That's the town with the immigration office and the big border control.
A long road to Kashgar.

This is a spot few westerners get to see, I should think. You are definitely an adventurous traveller!
