This looks

very much like a plant called "havtorn" (Hippophaƫ rhamnoides) we have in Denmark. The berries are edible, aren't they?

Re: This looks

Thank you very much for your nice comments to my photos. The plant is a wild plant and only growing during the month of May to September each year. I don't know the exact name of this plant and wheather these are edible or not.
Best regards, Afzal

Re: sea buckthorn

Hippophae rhamnoides ssp. turkestanica. I used to have a few young plants growing in my backyard, but they didn't survive a particularly dry year :(
Afzal - it's a medicinal berry against sunburns and to accelerate wound healing, among other things.

Re: sea buckthorn

By the way you may want to attach it to Romek's album of mountain berries, your picture will look perfect in there!

Re: sea buckthorn

Interesting to see that the same plant grows at sea level in Denmark, and in such high mountains as the Karakoram that far away!
