The Karakoram Highway is the only road connecting China and Pakistan. Construction of the highway started in 1959, transforming the lives of local residents. In the city of Gilgit, there is a cemetery of 88 Chinese workers who died while building the highway. Manzure Madad and Ali Ahmad stand guard at the Chinese cemetery, just like Manzure’s father did for decades before him. They hope that their sons will also continue their work, so as to carry on the friendship between China and Pakistan.
