The Karakoram Mountain Range, one of the great mountain ranges of Asia, lies on the border of three countries: Pakistan, India, and China. The Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan, Ladakh region of India, and the Xinjiang Province of China are home to this mountain range. About 500 km long and 200 km wide, the Karakoram Range borders the Pamir Mountains to the north, the Tibetan Plateau to the northeast and the Himalayan Mountain Range bounds it from the south. The Gilgit, Indus, and Shyok Rivers separate these two mountain ranges.
The Karakoram Mountains are the most condensed cluster of high peaks found anywhere in the world. K2, the 2nd highest peak in the world and the highest peak in Pakistan, stands at 8611 meters. This mountain range is home to more than 20 mountain peaks with heights above 7000 meters and of these four are above 8000 meters. Four of the world’s fourteen highest mountains are located within the Karakoram Range: K2, Gasherbrum I and II, and Broad Peak.
