Baltistan

Baltistan is a mountainous landlocked region between China and India, commonly referred to as ‘Pakistani Kashmir.’ A place virtually isolated from the rest of the country where 96% of the area is composed of mountains between 4,000 and 8,000 meters. A region where the presence of the Pakistani state since independence from Britain in 1947 has been minimal.baltistan-1

Baltistan is for many, the most spectacular region of Pakistan due to its impressive geography and scenery.

The three major mountain ranges in the world converge in this area: the Karakoram, the Hindu Kush and the Himalaya, making this region a paradise for mountaineers, trekkers and adventurers.

The Hushe Valley, where the Felix Baltistan Foundation works, is a high mountain valley in the northeast corner of Baltistan, located between 2,500 and 3,400 meters.
