Satellite image of Kashmir

This satellite image shows the final part of the Hispar glacier. Unfortunately, the clouds hide a huge part of the mountains in the east (where one can only distinguish the glacier of the fabulous trilogy basin, Trivor, Desteghi and Khunyang Sar, at the bottom right of the photo) but the uprightness of Spantik is visible at the top of the image uphill of the glacier tongues of the Barpu glacier. The experts may probably recognize the fragile but fertile dejection cone on which the Hispar village is situated with its cultivated terraces (left side of the glacier).
