Ihave dreamt of taking a road trip along the Karakoram Highway ever since a friend of mine – a fellow photographer – showed me the extraordinary scenes he was able to capture through his lens when he made the trip back in the early 90s.

On a recent trip to Kashgar, China’s westernmost city, I finally got my chance – the opportunity to spend an entire day driving to, and experiencing, the stunning Karakul Lake, on the China side of the Karakoram Highway. It was a journey 20 years in the making.
