The Northern Areas of Pakistan are a rocky wilderness of 27000 Sq. Miles (about 68000 Sq. Km) containing the biggest cluster of majestic mountains anywhere in the world and the biggest glaciers anywhere outside the polar region. The mighty Himalayas come advancing into this region from India, Tibet and Nepal and north of them spread the more localized but still majestic Karakoram range, both heading northwest while in between flows the mighty Indus river. Along the Indus are many lovely valleys along side the main river and in the path of its tributaries.
The breath taking combination of Towering Peaks, deep and steep gorges, moonlit lakes, cool streams, rapid rivers, whistling deserts, frosty glaciers and fairy meadows.
Northern Pakistan has the most beautiful and mightiest mountains on earth from the forbidding heights of the five peaks which are over 8000 m, so the dozens that are over 7000 m high, all have one thing in common; they are majestic and magical. K-2 The King of Karakorams is the second highest peak in the world at 8611 m. Nanga Parbat 8126 m is the 9th highest peak in the world. Many legends and superstitious stories have been spun around this peak but it is rightly known as the “Killer Mountain”.
