All peak below 6500m in Pakistan are now free of peak fee for 2006 season. All peaks in Hindu Kush and Hindu Raj area above 6500m are now charged only 10 percent peak fee.
The Hindu Kush range runs parallel to the Oxus River in northwestern Pakistan and northeastern Afghistan. The highest peak is Tirich Mir, 7706m. There are 78 summits above 7000m and more than a hundred above 6000m. The Hindu Raj is located east of Hindu Kush, it is bounded by the Yarkhun River and split into eastern and central parts by the Mastuj River. The Hindu Raj has more than seventy summits above 6000m. In both of these ranges, high cliffs rise above river beds as a result of glacier erosion; the peaks rise above these cliffs which often obscure views of the peaks. The name Hindu Kush and Hindu Raj is generally interpreted as Killer of Hindus, but Commander James Rennel interpreted it as a corruption of Indian Caucasus, and this latter still enjoys some acceptance.
