Sost, the only dry port town in Northern Pakistan, is situated in Gojal region of the Northern Areas of Pakistan. The dry port at Sost makes it a major trade market of the area as well as an attraction for tourists. It is the last major town inside Pakistan on the Karakoram Highway before the Chinese border . The town is an important place on the Karakoram Highway for all passenger and Cargo transport because all traffic crossing the Pakistan-China border passes through this town and the Pakistani immigration and customs departments are based here.

Accessibility:

The town of Sost is connected by the Karakoram Highway to Karimabad, Gilgit and Chilas on the South and to the Chinese cities of Tashkurgan, Upal and Kashgar in the North. Passenger road service between the Tashkurgan and the Pakistani cities of Sost and Gilgit also exists, and there is road service between Kashi and Gilgit (via Tashkurgan and Sust ).

During winter, the roads are blocked by snow.
