It represents the Siachen glacier of the Kondus valley and the upper
Baltoro to the south (top of image). It covers the Teram Kangri, Mamostong
and Rimo mountain ranges. This place, where the highest war of the
world takes place, is for obvious reasons prohibited to dawdling visitors.
It's a rare document because of its excellent precision, it's just
about possible to distinguish the military installations on both control
lines of India and Pakistan. Careful - even though this photo is free
of all rights, one might question that by consulting it, we may not
become spies. Just a warning. It's a pity that the higher left part
of the image could not cover the parts of the mysterious mountain
K2 (7428m) and that 10-20% of fog does not allow to clearly define
the Shyok valley where the silk road can be found that went up the
valley to the Karakoram pass and then towards Turkestan.
