Explore Khunjerab

Khunjerab Pass sits at an altitude of 4,693 meters (15,397 feet) above sea level, earning it the nickname “The Roof of the World.” The air is thin, and the landscapes are rugged, with snow-capped peaks and glaciers.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Khunjerab is its status as an international border crossing. The pass connects Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan region with China’s Xinjiang Autonomous Region. It’s a vital link in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), facilitating trade and cultural exchange between the two countries.
