You will also pass by Khunjerab National Park

We met some serious trouble...first a landslide, destroying almost the whole road...

Then the whole highway was flooded with water!!! -___-'''

Many trucks have been stuck here for days...

We have to trek up and down the mountains for around one hour to cross to the other side of the roadblock...Luckily I traveled light, so I carried all my stuffs myself

Enterprising porters always ready to earn some quick bucks

Walking on very narrow trail...

Finally made it to the other side of the roadblock...

Porters heading in the other direction towards China

It is a tough climb with that load of stuffs

Really hard work!!!

they say they will need another week or so to clear up the mess...till then...u have to do it the hard way! lol

they have all their tents and kitchen set up already
