The Karakoram Highway (KKH), already famous for its civil engineering marvel, has now been named one of the world’s 15 most attractive highways for its aesthetic splendour.
The KKH was described as a “perfect environment for the most exciting road journey” by Wikicampers, a website that provides tourism services in many regions of the world.
“Let’s regain height by taking the world’s second highest asphalt road,” the website explained the route’s attributes.
The Karakoram Highway (KKH) connects China and Pakistan by crossing the Karakoram mountain range and passing by peaks above 7,000 meters in height.
The route, which runs from Hasan Abdal in Gilgit-Baltistan to the Khunjrab Pass in China, is around 1,300 kilometers long.
The BBC described the KKH as one of the world’s highest paved highways and a significant commerce route between Pakistan and China in its programmer. The road was also described as well developed, smooth, and safe.
