Pakistan is very rich in mountains. It has more than 109 peaks above 7,000 metres sea level. There is countless of the peaks above 5,000 and 4,000 m. Five of the 14 highest independent peaks in the world are situated in Pakistan. common definition of a mountain is a summit with 300 m prominence (1,000;ft; also 10 traditional rope lengths). Alternatively, a relative prominence (prominence/height) is used (usually 7-8%) to reflect that in higher mountain ranges everything is on a larger scale.
The Karakoram Range covers the borders between Pakistan, India and China, in the regions of Gilgit-Baltistan (Pakistan), Ladakh (India), and Xinjiang region, (China). The range is about 500 km (311 mile) in length, and is bounded on the northeast by the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, and on the north by the Pamir Mountains. The southern boundary of the Karakoram is formed, west to east, by the Gilgit, Indus, and Shyok Rivers, which separate the range from the northwestern end of the Himalaya range. is having world the most beautiful mountains like K-2 mountainswhich is the second tallest mountain in the world.It was 1887 the 1st British surveyor came to this region from Kashmir via Brogil Pass, Goodwin Austen discovered peaks and glaciers in this area, he tried to climb peaks but some reasons he couldn’t manage. Due to its very high altitudes and sub-zero temperatures these mountainous regions are also one of the most heavily glaciated part of the world outside the polar regions. Together, the Himalayan mountain system is the planet's highest and home to the world's highest peaks: the Eight-thousanders, including Mount Everest (Nepal/Tibet) and K2 (Pakistan's Northern Areas).
