Best Answer

One of the most well heard of trades in history is SILK but not many people know much about it but the say some of the heaviest traffic for SILK trade routes was in the mountains of Pakistan.

SILK was one of the most expensive items in that time and only Kings/Queens and Emperors could afford it so if you could get enough silk and manage to sell it then you were lucky but so many people died trying to transport it as either they were murdered and their goods stolen or they died of exhaustion/dehydration or they simply froze to death.

Many people belive infection could've killed thousands in that trade as well.
