Among these mountains masses are also found the greatest concentration of ice-glaciers, including world 2nd longest, all these melting into the famous Indus river system.

This huge altitudinal and latitudinal variation give rise to more than 20,000 plants and animal species. Above all, the long civilization history has also given rise to very rich, complex and unique arts, cultures and traditions.
