Great page and details.
"such stuff as dreams are made on..."
Great page Johan!!
Kenzo, thank you very much for your vote. As we both live in China, I hope that one day we can meet and explore some of our wonderfull mountains!
Thank you very much for your vote.
Thank you very much for the vote, Bor!
Nice page Johan! I only have a question. Why don't you clear the "hh" section at the end of the page?
Thank a lot Diego! Wasn't aware of the section, will trow it out immediately, thanks for the hint.
Thanks for the vote!
Very informative and usefull, good work;)
A little bit late, must have missed it during my absence, but thanks for the vote!
Great page on an interesting mountain!
Good page Janne but I've found the next paragraph in Wikipedia:
"Some authorities claim that the Kunlun extends north westwards as far as Kongur Tagh (7,649 m) and the famous Muztagh Ata (7,546 m). But these mountains are physically much more closely linked to the Pamir group (ancient Mount Imeon)".
You say the opposite in your page. What do you think about that?
Before I answer the question I have to speak to some which really knows all about this. Personally, I have heard a good explanation why Muztagh Ata, Kongur and all the peaks in that group should be a part of the Kunlun. The reason given had something to do with Ulugrabat Daban (a pass close to Koskulak), the long Subashi valley and where and how it terminates meeting the Pamir and the Karakoram. I'll get back to you about this, when I have checked.
One of the answers I got on the question:
Chakragil (My note: this peak also goes under names Karabekter Tagh and Kingata Feng) and Kongur (including Muztagh Ata) are orologically two different independent subsystems. Their ridges continue to the Pamir ranges, but have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the Kunlun ranges, which are just ranges of the giant K2 subsystem. I think, the orological systematic should be accepted one time. Geological or the traditional arbitrary separations are illogical imho.
Another one was:
The Subash Valley clearly separates the Muztagh/Kongur group from teh (sic) Pamir. As you can see (my note: a map attached to the answer) the peaks have no connection to Kunlun either. If you *have to* sort Muztagh/Kongur/Kingata under a larger system, sort it under Pamir even though it's *not* part of it per definintion (sic), but it makes more sense than attaching it to teh (sic) Kunlun.
I guess I should re-write the Kunlun and the Pamir pages.
Corax, Can you upload the map mentioned in your quote to the Kunlun page?
