My mother took that road from China to Islamabad Pakistan back in the 1990s. She is a very nervous passenger under the best circumstances, and she said it was absolutely terrifying. Back then, it wasn’t paved all the way.
I dunno. This road looks pretty scary. It may have been the one on that truck driver show? #1 Yungas Highway Or The Death Road In Bolivia – Most Dangerous Roads In South America.

Yeah, I’ve heard of that road before. My mom's trip was from China to Pakistan over the Karakoram pass. I have two Persian rugs she picked up in an open air maker in Islamabad on that trip. She had traveled around China some before the caravan she was with went over that pass. They entered China via Beijing, spent time in Mongolia, in the Gobi desert, and then went over the mountains. At that time, the Karakoram Pass road wasn’t paved all the way. She has pictures of it.
