Do a virtual drive via these Mapillary images I took last week of the pass cut by hand by Japanese prisoners of war after World War II. The pass was carved out of solid rock using hand tools.
There is a small memorial to Japanese POWs at the top of the hill.
So far about 5,000 of the over 30,000 images I collected on this trip have been uploaded. I copied them from my smartphone to my desktop computer and am using the desktop interface with Mapillary.com to upload them. Due to the slow internet speeds of the Turkmen internet, it will be a while before all images are uploaded.
