Dramatic Road, Karakoram, Pakistan
The 170 kilometer long Skardu-Gilgit road is one of the most dramatic roads in the world, following the narrow, bleak, dark, and stupendously high ravine of the Indus from mile after mile. One of the best trail for adventure mountain cycling in Karakoram Pakistan.

What a view, mile after mile, what more could you ask for? Where I live, places like this do not exist. One day...

Thanks for looking at y photo. Not until 1978, with the completion of 170 km long Skrdu-Gilgit road, did Baltistan (Skardu the capital city of Baltistan) have any permanent access to the rest of the world, and even in 1980s the citizens retained their self-sufficiency and independence, aloof from the twentieth century and its wonders. So formidable in the scale of its color and texture, savagery and desolation is the Indus gorge out of Skardu that not hardly Baltis ventured to cross it.

I guess that this trail has it all ! I bet that even the most daredevil cyclists feel the chills of being precipitously close to doom which somewhat compares to the emotions there are riding a roller coaster...

Although it is much safer at the amusement park...
