Wow, I didn't know the highway was also so abundant with plant life! I imagine the Karakoram highway as this intense high-alpine zone far above the trees.
I went back to my adventure bucket list, that I haven't edited since 2015, and at the top of the list is the Karakoram highway. @Awais, your photography is inspiring me to actually make the journey down the Karakoram. The logistics are what scare me... visas, vehicle, etc.
