- The first evidence of Chinese influence on the KKH is Thakot Bridge, 123 kilometers and about two and a half hours from Abbotabad. Like other bridges on the KKH, it is a graceful arch of white cement, its balustrade decorated with carved lions and lanterns and its side walls with pastel butterflies and flowers. For the next 310 kilometers the highway follows the Indus. The Alai Valley, east of Thakot, is reached on a spectacular road that rises over 1000 feet to give bird's eye views back down to the Indus.
