After crossing Khunjerab Pass, it becomes as China National Highway 314. Road is constructed on high elevation and is crossing from high mountains where landsliding and earthquacks are common, to avoid such thing, the Government of China has constructed five different tunnels, known as Pak China Parri Tunnels, at different places in Gilgit-Baltistan as a friendship between Pakistan and China. One of these tunnel is located just after crossing Jaglot.
