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.
