Sarpo laggo Pass 5700MTR.
The Muztagh Pass or Muztagh Pass is a pass across the Baltoro Muztagh range in the Karakorum’s which includes K2, the world’s second highest mountain. The crest of the Baltoro Muztagh marks the present border between Pakistani and Chinese territory..
There are actually two passes, the eastern or ‘Old’ Muztagh Pass (alt. about 5,422 m.) and the so-called ‘New’ Muztagh Pass, about 16 km (9.9 mi) to the west (altitude variously given as 5,700 and 5,800 m.) The pass is on the watershed between the rivers which flow towards the Tarim Basin and those flowing to the Indian Ocean.
The route across the Muztagh Pass is the shortest route from Yarkand to Skardu on the upper Indus River in Baltistan, from where caravans used to head on to Srinagar in Kashmir. The pass is situated about midway between the Karakoram Pass to the east, which leads to Leh in Ladakh, and the Kilik and Mintaka passes to the west which lead to Hunza and Gilgit.
