According to the details, Karakoram is the only land route that links Pakistan with China. Earlier it used to take three hours for the vehicles to commute between China and Pakistan but now since the construction of the Eastern part, the time has decreased from three to one hour only. Apart from trade and business, this new development is a big attraction for the tourists as well as it crosses the tallest chain of mountain ranges of the world i.e. Himalayas and Karakoram. This highway at the Khunjrab pass is at the elevation of 4,693 meters from sea level. The reduction in time from three to one hour is attracting more tourists than before which has brought bonus for the Pakistani economy.
