Photographer's Note

The Karakoram Highway or KKH in short, is the greatest wonder of modern Pakistan. It is one of the most spectacular roads in the world connecting Pakistan to China. It twists through three great mountain ranges - the Himalayas, Karakoram and Pamir.

KKH passes through the Karakoram Range, which boat 12 of the 30 highest mountains in the world.

River indus is a very old capmanion of KKH and old silk rout. The ultimate source of the Indus is in Tibet. The Indus is, by volume, the largest exotic river (one that mainly flows through a country from which it receives no water) in the world.
