Karakoram & Hindu Kush Mountains

 in Pakistan

The Karakoram is a mountain range spanning the borders between Pakistan, China, and India, located in the regions of Gilgit, Ladakh, and Baltistan. It is one of the Greater Ranges of Asia, often considered together with the Himalaya, but not technically part of that range. Karakoram means "black gravel" in Turkic, as many of its glaciers are covered in rubble.

The Karakoram is home to more than sixty peaks above 7,000m ( 22,960 ft ), including K2, the second highest peak of the world ( 8,611m, 28,244 ft ). Most of these peaks are in the Hunza of Pakistan. The range is about 500 Km ( 300 miles ) in length, and is the most heavily glaciated part of the world outside of the polar regions.
