National Highway 22 is one of the world's deadliest roads. Located in India, the road has dangerous cliffs, poor bridges and tunnels, heavy traffic and very bad conditions. It has a poor maintenance and hazardous driving conditions all through the year.
A local rides through the dirt alleys of Turpan's picturesque Tuyoq Village. This is what Kashgar's Old City used to look like more than a decade ago. During the summer months the locals sleep on the roofs of these mud-brick homes set at the foot of the Flaming Mountains. Meandering through these alleys like I did last week is one of my favorite things to do in Turpan.
