very much like a plant called "havtorn" (Hippophaƫ rhamnoides) we have in Denmark. The berries are edible, aren't they?

Thank you very much for your nice comments to my photos. The plant is a wild plant and only growing during the month of May to September each year. I don't know the exact name of this plant and wheather these are edible or not.
Best regards, Afzal

Hippophae rhamnoides ssp. turkestanica. I used to have a few young plants growing in my backyard, but they didn't survive a particularly dry year :(
Afzal - it's a medicinal berry against sunburns and to accelerate wound healing, among other things.

By the way you may want to attach it to Romek's album of mountain berries, your picture will look perfect in there!

Interesting to see that the same plant grows at sea level in Denmark, and in such high mountains as the Karakoram that far away!
