The Most Dangerous Roads in Pakistan

The Most Dangerous Roads in Pakistan

If you've traveled through the north of Pakistan, you're probably aware of the hair-raising serpentines that cover the valleys and mountains there. From the Karakoram Highway to the Fairy Meadows, the Shimshal, Gilgit, Kaghan, Shandur, and Shounter valleys, we have not explored a place to bring you this collection of the most dangerous roads in Pakistan. KARAKORAM HIGHWAY: We start with the Karakoram Highway or KKH, the highest paved road in the world. Built over a period of 27 years, from 1959 to 1986, on the way of the original Silk Road, the KKH demanded nearly 900 lives during its construction. Most of them were Pakistani workers, while about 80 of them were Chinese. With a length of 1,300 kilometers, it is considered one of the scariest roads in the world. Here you can expect highs, serpentines and steep cliffs. Considering the route, the KKH is also prone to bad weather leading to avalanches, landslides and heavy snowfall that can block the route for days. The part of the KKH that leads to the Khunjerab Pass is particularly challenging. There is only enough space for a single jeep with a steep slope at one end and a rugged cliff at the other. Driving should not be attempted by novice drivers, and the vehicle should be adequately equipped for emergencies before crossing the route. FAIRY MEADOWS TRACK: The 16.2-kilometer route begins at the Raikot Bridge on the Karakoram Highway and leads to the village of Tato at 3,300 meters above sea level. The road is unpaved, bumpy and risky. A jeep crawls carefully so as not to fall into the abyss. The route is certainly not for the faint of heart and is often listed as one of the scariest roads in the world. But it is not the ride that scares you, but the last two kilometers of the track, where the road gets so narrow that no vehicle can drive through. You have to dismount here and then hike up. The journey takes about 2 hours, but it can be the most terrible two hours of your life when a wrong step plunges the gravel down the cliff. You can do this part of the journey on horseback when trekking uphill is too much of a challenge. SHIMSHAL VALLEY ROAD: Shimshal is the highest settlement in the Hunza Valley with a height of 3,100 meters. The settlement was only accessible in October 2003 on the street. At that time, a road that was under construction for 18 years was completed and then inaugurated. Before the route was built, the residents of Shimshal had to undertake a three-day trip over three passes under extreme weather conditions, to reach the nearest village, Pasu (at an altitude of approximately 2,485 meters), is one of the most dangerous roads in Pakistan, and only experienced ones Jeep drivers make the journey. Normally, a vehicle leaves Shimshal every morning, takes all passengers to Pasu and returns in the evening, but without having to cross guardrails on the road and some scary wooden bridges and canyons to get to another settlement, few want to cross regularly , The distance is 56 kilometers, but the vehicle's speed limit is approximately 10 kilometers per hour. You should only experience this thrill if you are prepared to spend five hours on this dangerous path that even the locals fear. JALKHAD-SHARDA ROAD: The 48.7-kilometer road connects Jalkhad in the Naran Valley with Sharda in the Kashmir Valley and reaches Mount Noori Top. The route, built in 1998 by the Pakistani army during the Kargil War and one of Pakistan's most insidious routes, is now a tourist destination for adventure seekers. The view on the way is fabulous, with the Naran Valley on one side and the Kargil Mountains and Kashmir on the other side. However, you can only enjoy the view if you ignore the steep slopes that run along the road at each turn. Weather-related restrictions often lead to an almost one-year blocking of the route. Therefore, July to September is the best time to enjoy this exciting and death-defying ride to the summit. GILGIT-SKARDU STREET: The route known as Strategic Highway 1 or S-1 starts on the Karakoram Highway in Gilgit and ends after 167 kilometers in Skardu. The slope carries passengers from a height of 1,500 meters to 2,200 meters above sea level along the Indus River. The road was built in 1982 by the engineers of the Pakistan Army in cooperation with engineers from China and was originally not asphalted. While the road sections are now paved, the journey is still 8 hours, and inclement weather may block the road for weeks. The rocky, rugged and barren mountains in the region make it difficult even for those suffering from car-sickness or claustrophobia, since the route is generally open only in the summer months, when the barren environment combined with an unbearable heat wave in combination with the gradual Slope can lead the track. For those who dare, the view is breathtaking as the road passes several suspension bridges, quaint villages and valleys. BABUSAR PASS: Chilas in the Kaghan Valley is connected to the Karakoram Highway via Babusar Pass. This road was known for its slippery gravel that could shake steel nerves. Although the road is now paved, it is still known for its winding turns and is usually open from July to September. Afterwards the winter weather leads to a blocking of the route. Although the climb takes you up to 4,200 meters (13,700 feet), it is the drop that will challenge even the most experienced riders, especially given the unexpected weather conditions the region is known for and the steep crashes at each turn.

Karakoram Highway The 8th Wonder of the World

Karakoram Highway The 8th Wonder of the World

Driving on the Karakoram Highway (KKH), known as Shahrah e Karakoram, is considered one of the best road trip experiences in Pakistan. And if you think we are exaggerating, we invite you to visit the highway and prove the opposite! Rightly described as the eighth wonder of the world, the Karakoram Highway is undoubtedly a marvel of technology. The highway was completed in 1979 and released to the public in 1985. DISCOVER THE KARAKORAM HIGHWAY: If you are one of the adventure seekers and are planning a trip through the KKH, here are some important things to keep in mind that you should know about this wondrous stretch in Pakistan to China. HISTORY: The Silk Road, which connected China with the Indian subcontinent, was one of the most important trade routes several centuries ago. The road was then converted into a mega-highway, originally known as Pak China Friendship Highway. Experts refer to the Karakoram Highway as an architectural masterpiece. For more than 20 years, the brightest minds in Pakistan and China have needed to complete the highway, which stretches over canyons, valleys, hills and rivers for hundreds of miles. Around 15,000 Pakistan Army men and thousands of Chinese workers have joined forces to build the KKH, which was built in one of the world's most dangerous areas. WHERE IT BEGINS AND ENDS: The Karakoram Highway, which has many curves and turns, stretches over miles of valleys and barren land with an incomparable view of the surrounding mountains. The Pakistani section of the highway officially begins in Hasan Abdal in Punjab, 50 km northwest of Rawalpindi. On the other hand, the city of Kashgar is the starting point of the Karakoram Highway in China. The Khunjerab Pass on the Karakoram Highway is the border point between Pakistan and China. However, if you plan to enter China from Pakistan or vice versa, you should know that the Khunjarab Pass is closed from November to March due to heavy snowfall. The KKH has also been included in the China-Pakistan economic corridor, which has already or will have various sections of the highway repaired to provide an improved travel experience. HOW LONG IS THE KARAKORAM MOTORWAY? Shahrah e Karakoram is an impressive 1,300-kilometer road that leads through many beautiful areas in northern Pakistan. It is a two-way road that can be used all year round except for the part of the Khunjerab Pass, which is closed for a few months every year due to heavy snowfalls. The Pakistani section of the Karakoram Pass is 806 kilometers long and starts in Hasan Abdal, a city in the Attock district of Punjab, and ends at the Pak-Chinese border THE HIGHEST POINT OF KKH: One of the reasons why the KKH is called the Eighth Wonder of the World is that the height of the Karakoram Highway near the Khunjerab Pass is 4,800 meters above sea level, making it one of the highest roads in the world. However, travelers will be happy to know that the ascent is very slow so they may not experience travel sickness. However, it is still recommended to drink plenty of fluids. ATTRACTIONS AND FOOD POINTS ALONG THE MOTORWAY KARAKORAM: The Karakoram Highway is one of the main tourist attractions in Pakistan, with spectacular views of the world's highest mountain ranges, the Himalayas and Karakoram. You will find many breathtaking natural attractions as you drive further up the highway. The KKH's 300-kilometer stretch between Islamabad and China holds some hidden treasures that every tourist in Pakistan needs to explore. In addition, you will be astonished by the natural beauty of Mansehra, Abbotabad, Thakot, Pattan Besham, Sazin, Chils and Gilgit Baltistan. Do not miss the fascinating view of the Hunza River in some places as you drive along the Karakoram Highway. Because you are at high altitude, you may feel hungry more often. In fact, the Karakoram Highway is used daily by hundreds of truckers, tourists in Pakistan and traders who prefer to dine at the local restaurants along the highway.

Benefits of Going Solar in your Residential or Commercial Space

Benefits of Going Solar in your Residential or Commercial Space

When people think about getting solar energy, they usually think of big, dark panels that cover their roofs. Not picturesque, but rewarding (considering the functional aspects of the matter). Now everyone knows that the sun is the most idyllic source of energy. Why? Because it is an indefinitely renewable natural resource whose rays produce neither carbon dioxide nor other dangerous (i.e. greenhouse) gas emissions during conversion. You also do not need a fuel or water / wind power to generate electricity. However, there are many other lesser-known benefits of using solar panels in your home area - read below to find out what that is! MINIMUM ENERGY PRODUCTION COSTS: The cost of maintenance and power generation of solar backup solutions is virtually non-existent, as you only have to pay the installation cost of your preferred device. The prices of these products - and in particular the cost of solar panels - vary. Depending on the size and type of your accommodation. Despite the significant initial investment (capital investment), your solar energy resources will pay off well in the long term, as there are no additional costs for regular use. LESS ENERGY / DISTANCE LOSS: In a conventional (wired) energy system, losses in transportation and distribution of energy increase in proportion to the distance between the production network and the supply points. Although this waste of energy is not very big, your devices and utilities cannot function optimally anymore. This problem is more pronounced in densely populated areas. With solar energy outlets, however, the photovoltaic modules are mounted on your rooftops - which significantly reduces the distance between the power generator and your devices. FLEXIBLE INSTALLATIONS: One of the major (experimental) benefits associated with using solar energy systems is their ease of installation. First, you do not need a spacious roof to install the panels. Any horizontal or vertical space is enough. In addition, you can easily expand your installations if your energy needs change. Going Solar is the ideal solution for rural or geographically remote areas, where the cost of power distribution over traditional power distribution schemes is far too high. Today, traffic and traffic safety departments are also known for using solar panels (such as the Solis Energy-made "Light Pole Power Tap") to power streetlight poles and street lights to save on energy costs without compromising traffic safety. SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT: Solar energy production does not lead to the emission of toxic gases - as we said at the beginning of this article. It also causes no noise pollution. This is a big plus point for cities like, Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore and different large cities of Pakistan, areas where high tones are already a big problem. Furthermore, there is no waste that needs to be disposed of later, and the equipment does not require much maintenance. In fact, quality manufacturers of solar products such as Solis Energy are developing their products to withstand extremely harsh weather conditions - which mean they are very reliable. LESS ACCIDENT HAZARD: We have all heard of the terrible accidents caused by faulty power grids or broken electricity pylons. Solar energy grids, however, are not as susceptible to overloads, fires or other harmful disasters because of their safer operating mechanism. In Pakistan, the move towards solar energy is certainly the next big step on the road to "full electrification" - a promise that has long been announced by many at the forefront of government, but barely honored. Individual homeowners have stuck to this turn-of-the-century trend, and in some of the nobler areas of the country, there is hardly a house that does not have one or two elongated solar panels.

SMALL BATHROOM CHANGES: This is undeniably one of the simplest hacks for home improvement for tenants. Once you realize how effortless a shower head change is, you'll regret why you've never thought of it. It is instantly added to your daily experience and is a fairly simple and affordable process. You can easily swap with the old one as soon as you move out. You can also hang a colorful bath organizer on the bathroom door. Or turn the faucet into a fashionable one. Keep those you inherited from your renter in a safe place and remember to put them down where they belong before you move out. REMOVABLE WALL STICKERS: Wall stickers give your room a trendy look. They come in different types of unique designs. A family tree with picture frames, calligraphy or maybe an abstract design are some wall sticker designs. You can choose which design suits your home decor. Unlike wallpapers or other types of decorative wall trends, wall stickers are relatively easy to attach. Your landlord may appreciate it if you make an effort to turn a boring, lifeless place into an interesting one. It only takes you half an hour to place the wall sticker and the Voila! You have an individual wall. USE WASHI BANDS: Use washi tapes to decorate your furniture and walls. There are colorful washi tapes that you can easily apply to the furniture or cabinets to give the room a cheerful, trendy feel. Even your fridge, which is usually supplied in dull colors, can be given a radiant new look with these washy tapes. Give your boring fridge a touch of glamour and give it a trendy look. CHEAP, RENEWABLE KITCHEN UPGRADES: Change the kitchen cabinet buttons and hardware. You can always replace them when you move. Or you can add new buttons to kitchen cabinets. You will not lose money as you would take the kitchen cabinet hardware with you. You can also decorate the back of your closets with colorful wrapping paper to give your room a bright look.
