Pakistan is a land of varied and unique landscape. While high mountains renages dominate its North, series of low mountain ranges of Suleman, Pub, Kirthar and Makran extend from North to Southwest and South in a bone like manner. These low ranges dominate the plains and deserts to East and warm and captivating beaches of the Arabian sea to the South. It is, however, Northern Areas of Pakistan which is endowed with most geographical features in the world. It is here that three great, lofty and spectacular mountain renages, Karakoram, Hindukush and Himalayas meet. In an area of about 500 kms in width and 350 kms in deph, is found the most dense collection of some of highest and precipitous peaks in the world, boasting more than 700 peaks above 6000 meters, and more than 160 peaks above 7000 meters. These include five out of the total fourteen above eight thousand meters high peaks on earth, namely the second highest rock pyramid – the K2 (8611-M), the killer mountain Nanga Parbat (8125-M), the Hidden Peak Gasherbrum-I (8068-M), the Broad Peak (8051-M), and the Gasherbrum-II (8035-M). This enormous mountain wealth makes Pakistan an important mountain country offering great opportunities for mountaineering and mountain related adventure activities. The area is aptly called a paradise for mountaineers, adventure seekers and nature lovers. The compelling charm of these high, challenging , end less sea of rugged rock and ice pinnacles lure large number of climbers, trekkers, adventure seekers and nature lovers from all over the world to the Northern Areas of Pakistan, each year.

Re: Nice mountains

These mountains are far away from Islamabad. These mountains are located in the northern areas of Pakistan. I you like to see these great mountains, then you have to travel to Northern Areas of Pakistan. Thanks for your nice comments and looking at my album.
