The Land of Pure - A Journey Into the Heart of Baltistan

 By:   Date:

Northern Areas of Pakistan once a center for tourism is now a hub for terrorism; five of the Eight-thousander (14 independent mountains on Earth that are more than 8,000 metres - 26,247 ft high above sea level) are located in this region but now the access to them has been destroyed by extremism. Balti people after 9-11 have been struggling to make ends meet considering lack of tourists and Baltistan being the nucleus of historical, cultural and picturesque sites is slowly becoming desolate.
