Kilik Pass


The Kilik pass (4,827 m or 15,837 ft high; 37° 05 N; 74° 41' E), lies at about 30km west of the Mintika pass. Kilik and Mintika pass together served as a ancient entry point from China to India. Caravans and traders coming from China and Afghanistan via the ancient Silk Route favored the broader Kilik Pass. Glacier free and grass covered it provided enough pasture land for the horses, yaks and camels of arriving caravans and domestic animals alike. Still today, the area around Haaq and Sad Buldi, near Kilik provides some of the best grazing for the Misgari’s livestock.
