"On the Karakorum Highway" Travelling by Road to Moutains Tip by AndreasK


This picture is quite typical for the Karakorum Highway. All major bridges were built by the Chinese. However, neither Pakistan nor China had any engineers that were capabale of building tunnels. Therefore, you won't find a single tunnel on the Karakorum Highway that could provide shelter from falling rocks.
