For Luddo

who loves mountains, railway timetables, all things geeky…and whining.


The Mountain. That would be the Karakoram Highway (KKH). The highest paved international road in the world. It goes across the Karakoram mountain range, through the Khunjerab Pass, at an altitude of 4,693 m/15,397 ft. as confirmed by both SRTM and multiple GPS readings. –wiki.

The Timetable. A section of the timetable posted on our train from Datong to Beijing. The Gadgetry.  A solar powered car battery charger by the Chinese checkpoint WC on the way to Karakul Lake.
