Kazakhstan: On the road to China

Kazaxia received these great images from the Kazakhstan-China border post of Khorgos, along with some shots of the pot-holed road to China, which is Kazakhstan’s main gateway to the east.

Kazakhstan and China are developing a free trade zone on their border crossing at Khorgos, although the project appears to have stalled for the time being.

As the pictures of the lorry and cafe show, there’s still a lot of work to be done on upgrading the road and providing modern service stations.
