KKH along Indus River and Gilgit River

Karakoram Highway crosses among the high mountains in Jaglot along the Indus River and then after the confluence point of the Gilgit River and the Indus River, it moves along the Gilgit River toward Gilgit.

Hindukush Karakoram and Himalayas Junction Point

Jaglot is also important as the junction point of three mountain ranges, the Hindukush, the Karakoram, and the Himalayas. A view point is constructed there to facilitate tourist to get the view of such wonder.

Cliffs along KKH

Karakoram Highway crosses through high elevation within the rugged mountains. At most of the part, cliffs and stone cuts are spiked out from the mountains, which adds an extra difficulty in driving in those areas. Instead of that danger, it is the beauty of Karakoram Highway which makes it a unique road in the world.

Confluence of Indus and Gilgit

The Gilgit River merges with the Indus River at Jaglot. The view of their confluence is splendid within the high mountains of three ranges. The Indus River is the largest river of Pakistan, whereas the Gilgit River is the main river in Gilgit-Baltistan which joins with the Indus River at this point in Jaglot.
