Beauty of the mountains:

The gigantic mountains of Pakistan


Pakistan is home to 108 peaks above 7,000 meters. and probably as many peaks above 6000 m. Five of the 14 highest independent peaks in the world (eight thousand) are in Pakistan (four of them are in the vicinity of Concordia, at the confluence of Baltoro Glacier and Godwin Austen Glacier). Most of Pakistan’s highest peaks are in the Karakoram mountain range (which is almost entirely in the Gilgit-Baltistan region, and is considered part of the Himalayan range)                                 [Wikipedia]
