Karakoram Pass

Karakoram Pass, though not technically a peak, is nevertheless significant as the highest pass in the Karakoram. From the top of the pass, the high peaks of K1,K2,K3,K4 AND K5 are all visible.

Karakoram Pass is desolate, and the lack of vegetation, combined with high altitude, have led to the deaths of countless pack animals, whose bones are scattered everywhere along the trail.
