Images satellites du Cachemire

This picture is of a very great interest. We can see the Shyok valley cut by glaciers flowing deeply from the high Siachen/Rimo plateau, the Chong Kumdan and especially Kichik Kumdan glaciers who, in their sudden random surges, cut the road of the pilgrims who wished to go by the silk route which passed formerly in this valley to connect Chinese Turkestan by the very famous Karakoram pass (5570m) (consult Karakoram page for more interest on this subject). This zone asserted by India and annexed by China is locked by the Chinese authorities.
