Khunjerab Pass

Khunjerab Pass (sometimes Khunerjab Pass) is a high pass on the northern border of Pakistan with China. It peaks at 4730 m and is the highest point on the Karakorum highway. This section of the road was completed in 1982 and is possibly the highest metalled border crossing in the world.

The pass is often snow covered and during the rainy season (December-April), because of mudslides the pass is closed to all vehicles except large trucks.
