Photographer's Note

Northern Areas of Pakistan are famous in the world because of mountains,Almost 100 plus mountains exist in the country which are are above 7000 m which is even greater number than the rest of the world combine.
Here you can see some of the highest peaks of the country with two longest non-polar glaciers of the world.The Siachen Glacier 78 km long in the background of the picture & the Baltoro Glacier 68 km long running in the foreground.Such a beautiful view of highest peaks and running glaciers cannot be seen easily so you have to buy tickets of PIA Karakoram ksafari to see this with one own eyes.Remember this is the summer season because in the winter season these areas get closed beacuse of extreme snowfall and extreme low temperatures with average temperature of -60C.Even in summers the temperatures there are below freezing.
