Wakhjir pass is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.836m (15,866ft) above the sea level, located on the Afghanistan-China border. China has finished building a road across the pass.
The road to the summit is asphalted. It’s closed to foreigners and links Wakhan (Afghanistan) and the Tashkurgan Tajik Autonomous County (China). China has recently built a new road to the border area, along with additional guard posts. The road is intended for use by Chinese frontier patrols and for the transportation of supplies to border units.
