The highway, is an incredible feat of engineering, and gives way to monuments that tribute the 810 Pakistani and 82 Chinese who died forcing a road through one of the world’s most difficult and unstable terrain. The highway was a completed in 1978 and took 20 years to build, with 15,000 Pakistanis and 30,000 Chinese taking part in the process.
