The busy center of Hunza and cycling below one of the highest
mountains on earth.

Happy valley under the Rakaposhi Peak.
Part 5: Upper Hunza and the Khunjerab Pass
Lonesome mountain areas near the border.
Part 6: Xinjiang Highlands
Highlands of unimaginable size, surrounded by snow-covered mountains.
Crystal clear air and a culture that seems not to have changed since
Sven Hedin has traveled here.
Part 7: Kashgar
A faszinating and exotic town. A place to relax, but also to discover
"Sunday Market", said to be the biggest market in central asia.
Part 8: Back to Gilgit, Gilgit-Skardu Road and Skardu
Four days cycling in the narrow valley, the Indus roaring below us,
takes us to the Skardu desert in the center of Baltistan.
