Just one road, the Lowari Pass, vital for bringing supplies to villagers, links Dir, a small town in the tribal lands of the North West of Pakistan to the Chitral valley on the border with Afghanistan. 240 kilometres long, the Lowari Pass is the only way through the mountains. Taking this road is no picnic: it snakes between the mountain and its dizzy cliff-top drops. It should take a day to do the whole trip, but that rarely is the case. We made the journey with Dawood, a truck operator. At 23, he drives back and forth constantly¾the more journeys he makes the higher the risk of an accident. In the extremes of cold and heat, fatigue can hit without warning. Concentration must remain at the maximum because the least mistake can be fatal. So, Dawood never travels without his brother, Kahlid, just 14 years old, who is there as support and to learn the business. Like them, all those that take this road, drivers, travellers, shopkeepers, have to deal with dust, snow, torrents and rock falls. In view of the high number of accidents, the Pakistani government has launched a project to drive a tunnel through the mountain. This initiative delights the truck drivers, who will no longer be forced, at the risk of their lives, to climb to the top of the Lowari Pass, perched at an altitude of 3,100 meters. It is also believed that the opening of the tunnel will lower the valley’s very high unemployment rate by 50%.

No wonder they paint and decorate their trucks with so much color. Everything around them is grey, brown and white.

Ignorant prk smacking the guy in the face while he's driving. I'd push the fkr off a cliff next time he stops for a piss. First of all, he's defenceless while holding the wheel, second smack in the face is pretty ignorant.

When the man hit the driver, I stopped watching. Those uneducated criminals are not worth breathing and stealing oxygen from others! May their nuclear bomb detonate in their own country and kill them all.

I can't believe he found a pinion gear for an American Jeep CJ7 in a remote village! What are the odds of that? I'm fascinated how people can live without electricity, running water, toilets. That's the way to be! Independent of government.

DEOSAI - The Last Sanctuary (English Deadliest Journeys - Pakistan, mountain 1 day ago   37:02

Deosai –- The Last Sanctuary', Like ( Heaven on Earth ) a film on the endangered Himalayan Brown Bears, living in the Deosai Plateau premiered on April 24, at
the Pakistan Council of the Arts in Islamabad.
The Give Back Project works to improve the impact of nature and wildlife conservation by engaging with and educating young people, local
communities and the wider public through the medium of film.

The Deosai National Park is located in the Skardu, Northern Areas of Pakistan that is known as the Federally Administered Northern Areas (FANA). The park is located on the Deosai Plains, that are among the highest plateaus in the world with an average height of 4,114 metres above the sea level, covering an area of about 3,000 square kilometers. For just over half the year - between November and May - Deosai is snow-bound. In the summer months when the snow clears up, Deosai is accessible from Skardu in the north and the Astore Valley in the west. Deosai is well known for its spring season when it is covered by a carpet of millions of flowers and a wide variety of butterflies.

Deosai Plains make up one of the last frontiers of natural habitat for the Himalayan Brown Bear, a creature that once roamed the mountains freely. The Deosai National Park was established in 1993 to secure the survival of the bear and its habitat. Having long been a prize kill for poachers and hunters, the bear, Pakistan's largest omnivore, now has a hope for survival in Deosai where its number has increased from just 19 in 1993 to 40 in 2005.

The Deosai Plains are also home to the Himalayan Ibex, Red Fox, Golden Marmot, Wolf, the Ladakh Urial, the Snow Leopard, and over 124 resident and migratory birds. Birds in the park include the Golden Eagle, Lammergeier, Griffon Vulture, Laggar Falcon, Peregrine Falcon, Kestrel, Indian Sparrowhawk and Snowcock.
