Thanks for your comments and vote. The photo was taken from Karakoram Highway, the panorama is just as awesome, even though the ramparts here slope rather than plunge down. Where the Indus valley broadens out it dominates the horizone. The peak seen in the photo is Nanga Parbat (26660 feet high). For sheer size Nanga Parbat is almost without equal, not a single peak butm in fact, an entire massif culminating in an ice-sumit of 26660 feet high. The rumpled flanks of its subservient attendants climb up out of Indus Valley and there, beyond the blue-grey whaleback ridges, ringed by a halo could, rise its long ridge. Of all the great mountains that from the Pakistan it is most frequently seen.
