Chogolisa (or Bride Peak) is a mountain in the Karakoram region of Pakistan. It lies near the Baltoro Glacier in the Concordia region which is home to some of the highest peaks of the world. Chogolisa has several peaks, the highest on the SW face (Chogolisa I) rises to 7,665 metres (25,147 ft.). The second highest at 7,654 metres on the NE side (Chogolisa II) is the one named Bride Peak by Martin Conway in 1892.
In 1909, a party led by Duke of the Abruzzi reached 7,498m from a base camp located on the northern side and a high camp on the Chogolisa saddle at 6,335m. Bad weather stopped the party from ascending further.

oh Its so beautiful and pure picture.I love the glaciers of Pakistan. Are our glaciers melting too?i have read somewhere that Pakistan's Glacier are some of the unique in the way that they are not melting instead they have shown behaviours like Glacier surges. Behind Chogolisa is Kaberi glacier. That is very beautiful too but restricted due to Siachen glacier war with India.

Concordia is my dream ! Sooner or later I must go there.
A friend of mine who went there described it is as "the most beautiful place on earth". Your view of the lake, the glacier and the mountains is amazing. I am impressed by the think ice over the lake.

Very great landscape shot. The composition using this icy lake with green-blue colors in opposition to the deeper blue color of the sky and separated by the front of the glacier is very good. An finally, after a look on the blue region, the eye go on the sharp mountains on the background.
Same comment as Stefano, your photo really gives us the wish to go there and enjoy this landscape by ourselves.

I have to plead guilty by innocence, as I didn't know there was such beautiful icy landscapes in Pakistan.
Nice and well-managed presentation.
