Laila peak, Hushe Valley,Gilgit Baltistan... Photo by: @hassanjan01 Laila Peak (Urdu: لیلی چوٹی‎) is a mountain in Hushe Valley near Gondogoro Glacier in the Karakoram range. Located in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan, it has an elevation of 6,096 metres (20,000 ft). Laila Peak has a distinctive spear-like shape and its northwest face has a slope of 45 degrees in more than 1500 vertical metres.It has been climbed by Simon Yates, among others. According to the local people in Hushe, Laila peak has been climbed only twice, a total of only seven people have summited. It was climbed in winter for the first time by Spanish mountaineers Alex Txikon and José Fernandez, in February 2013. The height of the Laila peak in Hushe Valley is controversial. Some believe it to be 6200 metres whereas some mention it as 6614 metres. In a Japanese mountaineering map by Tsuneo Miyamori (published in 2003), the height of Laila Peak is mentioned as 6096 metres. he mountain lies in a restricted zone. The village of Hushe is the gateway to the mountain, in the Masherbrum Valley below but the Gondogoro and Chogolisa valleys are restricted. In order for non Pakistani citizens to visit these valleys a permit must be purchased from the Ministry of Tourism ($50 per person), and a licensed guide is required for the duration. . . . . . . #gbpakistan #pakistan #skardu #gilgit #hunza #astore #khaplu #kharmang #shigar #daimer #rondu #gilgitbaltistan #pakistan #BeautyofPakistan #naturalbeautyof #gilgitbaltistan #naturalbeautylover #mountainlover #heavenonearth #pieceofheavenonearth #beautyofPakistan #karakoram #Himalaya #nature

On the evening of our second day in Skardu, we were running out of time to perform Asr prayers so we made a quick pit stop at the nearest place of worship we could find in sight. After performing my prayers I realized that that sacred ground was actually an Imambargah, a place of worship for Shiite Muslims, and me being a Sunni absolutely loved how the people there never asked us as to which sect we belonged and just peacefully let us perform our duty towards the Lord because at the end of the day we are all Muslims. #skardu #baltistan #pakistan #dawndotcom #etribune #ig_pakistan #vscopakistan #imambargah #shiasunniunity #proudmuslim #placesyoullpray #explorer #wandereena #phonephotography #mytravelgram #travelnerd #travelbeautifulpakistan

Concordia,Baltoro Glacier, Gilgit Baltistan... Concordia (Urdu: کونکورڈیا‎) is the name for the confluence of the mighty Baltoro Glacier and the Godwin-Austen Glacier, in the heart of the Karakoram range of Pakistan. It is located in Baltistan region of Pakistan. The name was applied by European explorers, and comes from this location's similarity to a glacial confluence, also named Concordia, in the Bernese Oberland, part of the Central Alps. Around Concordia are clustered some of the highest peaks in the world. Four of the world's fourteen "eight-thousands" are in this region, as well as a number of important lower peaks. Concordia offers the region's best place to camp for mountain enthusiasts not involved in climbing. With scenic views, it also offers short treks to several important base camps: K2 (5–6 hours), Broad Peak (2–3 hours) and the Gasherbrum I&II (7–8 hours). An alternative exit to returning down the Baltoro Glacier is available by climbing the Gondogoro Pass (5615 meters). Visitors to the region are advised to carefully monitor their water intake with concern. To avoid often painful and sometimes debilitating stomach upsets at high altitude, water should be obtained from clear water sources and brought to a rolling boil, or purified before consumption. . . .

A truly breathtaking smoky cathedral quartz from Skardu, in northern Pakistan. Just wow! The level of intricacy in all the individual cathedral style terminations is just incredible! Literally hundreds of faces from large to very small cover the entire piece. This one maxes out my scale, might be over 2 pounds but that's just a guess, 8.5 inches long. There is some damage to the two main terminations which I have tried to show in the video. The damage does not significantly detract from the magnificence of this piece. Truly a joy to hold! It is available for $320 shipped in the USA. #quartz #cathedralquartz #smokyquartz #elestial #skardu #minerals #mineralspecimen #crystals #crystalhealing #chakrahealing
