The Karakoram Highway is one of the world’s highest altitude paved highways. Connecting China and Pakistan across the Karakoram Mountain range, the road follows part of what was once the old Silk Road. Also the main access road to some of the world’s tallest mountains, expect to pass along this route if you’re attempting K2, Gasherbrums I-IV, Masherbrum or Nanga Parbat, the caves around the road are littered with rock art dating back 7,000 years.
