Pakistan-China Border, Khunjerab Pass











Probably the highest international border crossing on earth. Mainly used as a trade route. Militaries on both sides perform drills together.

Probably part of an international envoy. Although, fake registration plates are common here.

The border gate has "ALLAH" written all over it. Care to elaborate on that? I can't read Arabic.

It's written in Urdu. Basically it's about declaration of faith in God. Kinda like how a US Dollar bill reads "In God We Trust"

They're from the past few years. The Wagah-Attari border crossing has flag exchange exercises every day at dusk in front of a live audience. The other ones are less popular and have such exercises on a weekly/monthly basis. Special exercises are held on days like Independence day. Since there's a lot of hostility between the two states, having fought 4 wars, a lot of people turn up on the border and shout chants during exercises to show their patriotism.

Cycleway across the I-SLO border at Rabuiese. It was built over the former Trieste Campo Marzio - Parenzo railway.

Looking at https://maps.google.com/?ll=28.97776...04608&t=h&z=18, it appears the crossover occurs in Pakistan, at least for trucks.

[NL][B] E34

There are some works carried out on Dutch Belgian border crossing along E34. A new bridge is being constructed there, which might be a part of new junction.
