The Khunjerab Pass

The Khunjerab Pass is a high mountain pass (4693m) than connects Pakistan (left) with China (right) as part of the Karakoram Highway that continues on the Chinese side in the valley on the center of this view west of the Kongur Shan mountains. In the region several of the highest mountain ranges of the earth meet: the Karakoram (foreground left), the Kunlun Mountains (foreground right), the Hindu Kush (background left) and the Pamir (far background). On the far right the westmost part of the Taklamakan Desert can be seen.
