Join me as we explore China's Karakoram Highway, one of the highest paved roads in the world with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world...and the perfect place to stage a cycling adventure! Are you planning a trip along the Karakoram Highway? Grab a copy of the FarWestChina Xinjiang travel guide: https://www.xjtravelguide.com *********************** Equipment I use: - my drone: https://amzn.to/2rCaxbm - my stabilized camera: https://amzn.to/2tz3ug5 - my big DSLR: https://amzn.to/2tyQPd8 ********************* The Karakoram Highway stretches from the ancient Silk Road oasis of Kashgar in China's Xinjiang region all the way to Abbottabad in Pakistan. The entire road is about 1300 kilometers and passes by some of the most beautiful scenery that this planet has to offer. On the Chinese side of the Karakoram Highway, there are a number of great sights to see. A couple hours outside of Kashgar, the first stop you'll run into is the White Sands Lake (白沙湖), an amazing contrast of what looks like desert meeting a gorgeous lake. Further south, the amazing Karakul Lake (卡拉库里湖) sits at the base of the Muztaghata mountain, part of the Pamir mountain range. It was here that we stayed in a Kyrgyz yurt along the shore. Rising in elevation, we cross the Subash pass (苏巴什) and ride through the Taheman Grasslands (塔合曼) before finally arriving at Tashkorgan (塔什库尔干). It's a journey that used to take 10-12 hours by bus but now takes only 5-6 hours thanks to new and improved highways. If you're considering traveling along the Karakoram Highway, I hope that this video will push you to giving it a try. You won't regret it!
