A drive through Karakoram will allow you to see endless variety of landscape, from snow capped mountains, to red mountains with their minerals, the Gez river and of course the famous Karakul lake. Beautiful view, not to be missed.

Islamja 是一个非常棒的司机一个不可思议的人。开车非常小心,在每一个需要拍照的地方都会停下来让游客拍照,让大家休息和上厕所。我们在喀什的一家青旅拿到他的电话号码。我们到Tashkurgan一直走Karakoram高速公路,走了一晚上,第二天我们住在karakol湖边的Guilis,睡在蒙古包里。你们可以通过电话预定18719937554。我可以想象冬天睡在蒙古包里是非常冷的,我们六月住在这里加上暖气很舒适。如果你想找更暖和的房子住,Islamja也能帮你在Gulis帐篷附近找到。Islamja能说普通话、维吾尔语、当地语言和一点英语,但没关系,我相信你能找到相互交流的方法,他态度非常好,如果他的客人开心他也会非常开心!想联系他就打这个电话13899182327 Islamja is a great driver. He drives always carefully and will stop as many times as you need to take pictures enjoy the view or just stretch or go to the toilet!. We got his contact recommended by the international youth hostel recommendation...More

Leaving Kashgar, you start to see the Himalayas after about 40 minutes and slowly you snake into the high snow mountains. You will be treated to majestic views. Why no 5 stars: an upgraded road is under construction. So loads of roadworks and backbreaking road...More
