It holds the record as the highest paved road in the world reaching an altitude of 4,693m and cuts through some of the most dramatic mountain scenery on the planet, cutting through three of the world’s highest ranges; the Karakoram, Himalaya and Hindu Kush mountains. Its construction started in 1966 and took 13 years to complete.
In the month of March 2018, the TKC (The Karakorum Club) started a prize theme and asked people to share their stories that go decades back into the history of traveling and exploring. Those were all good stories, the stories which should not be limited to the theme. The purpose of sharing these some of the stories which all liked to remember for a long time.
