Traveling along the Karakoram Highway is an experience that will captivate and enthrall you with the landscape and the size of the mountains en route. The landscape is extremely striking.

Terraced villages are dotted around this monumental terrain, supported by traditional farming methods and lifestyles that have seen little change over the centuries.

Talk to anyone who has driven the 1284km long highway and watch their eyes light up!
