In the north of Pakistan lies a mountainous region containing some of the world's most incredible scenery and mountain reaching the extreme altitudes like 7000 - 8000 meters & above. Between 1966 to 1978 it was for the hard work of Chinese and Pakistani engineers that a road was built above the shoulders of these gigantic mountains. More than five hundred lives are buried under this marvelous road which is known all over the world for its beauty and variation in terrain and culture. The highway runs along the river Indus and later continues to Gilgit and Hunza valleys. Each stop of this highway will definitely force you to admire it.
