Khyber Pass

Reviewed By MrWarrenM - Crown Point, Indiana

The most famous pass in the world, the Khyber Pass, which is also part of the famous “Silk Road”, is 11 miles from Peshawar. It has been, throughout history, the most important gateway to the plains of the South Asian sub-continent both for migration and invasion. Starting from the foothills of the Suleiman Range at the Jamrud; 11 miles from Peshawar, it extends beyond the border of Pakistan at Torkham, 36 miles away and it gradually rises to an elevation of 3,497 feet above sea level. The pass is 1 mile at its widest and only 53 feet at its narrowest. The last point tourists are allowed to go, is to the Michni Checkpoint where journalists and VIPs get briefed. Just beyond Michni Checkpoint at a journey time of around half an hour is the Border at Torkham, which leads into Afghanistan.
