Which continent is mountain rock in Pakistan


How is it in Pakistan?

The north of the country is criss-crossed by high mountains. Several mountain ranges meet here. That includes that Himalaya mountains, which is home to the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. The Hindu Kush and the Karakoram complete the trio of the three highest mountain ranges on earth. Those who want to go to Central Asia have to conquer these mountains.

The K2 is located in the Karakoram and is the highest mountain in Pakistan. If you want to climb it, you have to climb up to 8,611 meters. Mountaineers face this challenge again and again - the attraction is great.

Incidentally, five of the 14 eight-thousanders on earth are on the territory of Pakistan. That is also known Nanga Parbat, the ninth highest mountain in the world. This mountain is also so famous because 16 people lost their lives when it was first climbed in 1937 by German mountaineers.

Pakistan is not only characterized by mountains, but also by plains. The huge one Indus plain connects to the high mountains in the south. This level covers a third of the total land area. The Indus with the rivers Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi and Sutlei creates the so-called Five Rivers Land, which is very fertile. The Indus, which also gave its name to the neighboring country India, extends over a length of 3200 kilometers.

The west of Pakistan is also determined by high mountains, although their heights of up to 3500 meters do not come close to the heights of the mountain ranges of the north. The Thar Desert lies in the east of Pakistan.
