the world's most spectacular roads

 

Ali Malik Mar pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.082m (13,392 ft) above the sea level, located in Skardu Gilgit-Baltistan province, in northern Pakistan. The pass is traversed by the Deosai Park Road.

The road runs at an average altitude of 4.114 meters (13,497 feet) above the sea level. It’s located in the Deosai Plains, the second highest plateau in the world, after the adjoining Tibetan Plateau, between the ridge of the Himalayas and Karakoram. It includes gravel and asphalt sections, and crossing several rivers on scary bridges.

  

4x4 vehicles required. It’s accessible only in summers. The territory is known as the land of giants which remains a snow-bound bailiwick in the chilling winters. For just over half the year - between November and May - Deosai is snow-bound. In the summer months when the snow clears up, Deosai is accessible from the Astore Valley in the west and Skardu in the north .
