Photographer's Note

A view of Karakoram mountains taken during a flight from north Europe to Delhi at summer season. Karakoram is home to the highest concentration of high peaks to be found anywhere on earth, including among others K2, Gasherbrum, Rakaposhi, Chogolisa and Nanga Parbat
A significant part, 28-50% of the Karakoram range is glaciated, compared to the Himalaya (8-12%) and Alps (2.2%). Mountain glaciers may serve as an indicator of climate change. The Karakoram mountain range has been referred to in a number of novels and movies. Rudyard Kipling refers to the Karakoram mountain range in his novel Kim (1900). Source : wiki modified
