Satellite image of Kashmir

This satellite image covers the most disputed area between the Northern Pakistan and India near Siachen. A point located on a secondary top wedged between Karakoram range and Kailas (named NJ 9842) was selected in 1947 to trace the disputed border line to the Karakoram pass, thus crossing the Siachen glacier (upstream in Pakistan, downstream in India), border disputed so much since by India. On this image, one sees K12 there (7469m) and some other formidable mountains forsaken well by the mountaineers bus in full heart of No Man' S Land. One can regard this image as rare by its quality and the space which is represented there. Kalash range is also called "Little Karakoram ", it contains many "6000" peaks and some "7000", an absolutely desolated area.
