Northern Pakistan - Huge Peaks, Huge Glaciers and more

Northern Pakistan Mountain Region in Google EarthA big fan of the northern Pakistan mountain regions has put a lot of effort into documenting the area with a large collection of placemarks which include detailed descriptions. You will discover that the region is home to 5 peaks over 8000 meters in height, and over 100 over 7000 meters. Google Earth is an excellent resource for looking at this region when you use the pan/tilt features which let you view the satellite photos as they are draped over the 3D terrain. You will also find 3 glaciers each over 50 km long, and many other interesting facts. The placemark collection also shows camps for climbing expeditions, and documents many towns and villages all throughout the regions. You can turn on the borders layer and see how Google is now showing colored borders marking some of the disputed border areas. This collection was posted by someone called 'Waqas_' at the Google Earth Community.
