Sirwali Peak

The beautiful peak of "Sirwali".Some 6326 metres above sea level.It is the highest peak of Azad Jammu & Kashmir.It is located at the extreme end of the extremely beautiful Shaunter valley.Beyond this mountain is the Astore and Diamer District of Northern Areas.The greenery ends here and Astore and Diamer are mostly dry districts because Nanga Parbat massif provides the rain shawdow for the Northern Areas and blocks the passage of Monsson rain in Northern Areas causing these vapurs to fall in Azad Kashmir resulting in lush green Shaunter valley.If we rightly follow this mounatin ridge it will ultimately take us to Nanga Parbat (8126m).Nanga Parbat is approximately 25 to 30 km air distance from this area.
