While traveling on Gilgit-Skardu along perhaps the most treacherous road in Baltistan. But what views rewards the efforts. The ever-changing landscapes follow the sandy valley floor, black mountains reflecting in the waters of Mighty Indus River. On the slopes, little communities have carved their terraced fields and homes out of the mountainside, diverting the waters along a network of ancient irrigation aqueducts.
Thanks for looking at my photo and vote.
Best regards, Afzal
