Karakoram Highway, the legendary road stretching

Pakistan © Eric Bonnem

“This universe of persevered high-mountains and lost valleys is still home to people secluded from the modern world and far from fratricidal struggles. We take the Karakoram Highway (KKH), the legendary road stretching 1,200km that links from Islamabad in Pakistan to Kashgar in China, passing through the Khunjerab pass at 4,700 m, dominated by summits reaching 6,000 and 7,000 metres. We slalom between several tonnes of fallen rocks that litter the road. Here, the mountain is young and lively. Peaks are deadly sharp and often extremely technically difficult to climb.”
