Awesome

First the tremendous central Cathedral hit me with its dramatic lean and bright upper face, then the tower to the left hit me - almost as if it was planted there or decided to thrust itself out of the centre of the earth.

I begin to realise all the many places that I have yet too see.

And if I could never achieve to climb such a tower, then the ascending ridgeline on the Cathedral's foreground would fulfill me.

Vote 11 for its sheer drama

Re: Awesome

Thanks for your kind words about Trango Towers photo. Every year a large number of climbers and trekkers are visting Pakistan for climbing and trekking, specially for baltoro glacier. Hre one can see the loft mountains of earth inclduing K2, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum Peak, masherbrum, Muztagh Tower and many 5000 to 8611m peaks. You can climb all Trango Towers peaks which are below 6500m in a trekking permit from Ministry of Tourism Islamabad. The trekking permit fee is 50 US$ per person (The trekking permit is valid for 30 days), or you can climb many peaks below 6500m by obtaining a trekking permit from Ministry of Tourism Islamabad. Climbing of mountains of Pakistan dpends on the experience and fitness of the climber. I hope/wish that one day you may visit to my beautiful country for climbing and trekking.
Best regards, Afzal

These look amazing, are they hikeable? Of course not to someone like me but maybe advanced hikers?
