World travelers might find it fascinating to know that the road between China and Pakistan, known as the Karakoram Highway, or the China-Pakistan Friendship Highway is one of the highest paved roads in the world in terms of elevation.
BTJ has been operating a secret Christian business along this highway for several years and ministering to remote, unreached Islamic tribes. Due to its high elevation and the difficult conditions under which it was constructed, the friendship highway between China and Pakistan is often referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World.
Over 1,000 people died building this road, making it one of the most deadliest mountain pass construction projects ever.
What makes the road particularly special is that it follows along the ancient Silk Road, which paves the way for the Back to Jerusalem vision of the Chinese, as they leave out to preach the Gospel to unreached people groups.
Along the way, during the summer time, you will get the chance to see the Indus River and the Gilgit River, the three great mountain ranges of the Hindukush, the Himalayas, and the Karakoram, as well as crazy valleys and even magnificent glaciers.
The highway meets the Pakistani-Chinese border at Khunjerab Pass, one of the most windy roads in the world.
