"Extraordinary road between Skardu (Pakistan territory) and Kargil (Indian territory) winding around precipitous edges to Indus, below. Most of this section, made by Pakistan military engineers, would have been laid by hand, stone after stone. Captain McGregor, NZ UN Milob (Military Observer), dressed in borrowed Frontier Force uniform, is at rear of the UN jeep."
