The Karakoram Highway (Urdu: شاہراہ قراقرم‎; known by its initials KKH, also known as N-35 or National Highway 35 (Urdu: قومی شاہراہ 35‎) or the China-Pakistan Friendship Highway) is a 1,300-kilometre (810 mi) national highway which extends from Hasan Abdal in the Punjab province of Pakistan to the Khunjerab Pass in Gilgit-Baltistan, where it crosses into China and becomes China National Highway 314. The highway connects the Pakistani provinces of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa plus Gilgit-Baltistan with China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The highway is a popular tourist attraction and is one of the highest paved roads in the world, passing through the Karakoram mountain range, at 36°51′00″N 75°25′40″E / 36. 85000°N 75. 42778°E / 36. 85000; 75. 42778 at maximum elevation of 4,714 metres (15,466 ft) near Khunjerab pass.
