Mintaka Pass is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.450m (14,599ft) above the sea level, located between Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan and Xinjiang in China. It's one of the highest roads of the country.
Located in the Karakorum Mountains, the road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). The pass is also known as Mingteke Pass or Mintika Pass. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. On the Chinese side, the entire valley around Mintaka Pass is closed to visitors. It has been off limits to foreigners since 1947.
