Planning my 2nd solo vacation to northern region of Pakistan. Few facts:- 1) "Five of the 14 highest independent peaks in the world (the eight-thousanders) are in Pakistan." 2) "With 7,253 known glaciers, including 543 in the Chitral Valley, there is more glacial ice in Pakistan than anywhere on Earth outside the polar regions, according to various studies." Not only are these mountains beautiful to look at, they contain minerals and gemstones!
