For more than 1000 years, Kilik and Mintaka were the Silk Routes primary passes between China and Hunza and today these broad valleys and extensive alpine meadows, once closed to foreigners, are again accessible. Kilik and Mintaka, two historic passes on Pakistan's border with China, have been off limits to foreigners since 1947. The 1m-3m wide tails to these gentle passes are easy to follow,  springs  and trees are abundant, and camp sites  are grassy, making this one of northern Pakistan's easiest treks.
