This dangerous trail begins at the infamous Karakoram Highway and ends at the village of Tato, near Fairy Meadows, a picturesque destination at an altitude of about 3,300 metres above sea level.
Because it is a ‘treacherous high altitude, unstable, and narrow mountain road,’ it was named the world’s second deadliest highway in 2013. Avalanches and heavy snowfalls can occasionally block some sections of the road and create extremely dangerous patches of ice.
