When it comes to breaking records and making a history, no one could be better than Pakistanis. A Pakistani man, Mirza Aman, from Gilgit Baltistan has made history by driving his jeep in reverse gear from Tupopdon (Passu) to Shimshal, covering a tough 60-km track just in four and a half hours.
The best thing about the journey is that the Shimshal road is considered as the largest road of the world and is situated in Karakoram Highway. Karakoram is also titled as the ‘Eighth Wonder of World’. Mirza Aman had driven through the road in the reverse gear and could have faced death, if not driven with extreme care.
Mirza Aman’s reverse journey to Shimshal was captured by Ali Ahmad, a local photographer and has exclusively been reported by Pamir Times. This feat of bravery, determination, and the fight with death is worth appreciating. This man couldn’t have made Pakistan more proud!
