    i come from the federally administered Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan

    Pakistan is the home to 8000 year old MaherGerh Civilization,5000 years old Indus Civilization and 2000 years old Gandhara Civilization.
    It is also home to Karakoram,Hindukush and Himalaya mountain ranges.
    [B]Five of the fourteen eight-thousanders (peaks above 8,000 m) are in Pakistan.
    K2/Godwin Austen 8611 meters(second highest peak in the world)
    Nanga Parbat 8126 meters
    Gasherbrum I/K5 8080 meters
    Broad Peak 8051 meters
    Gasherbrum II/K4 8035 meters

    Pakistan is home to 108 peaks above 7,000 metres and probably as many peaks above 6,000 m. There is no count of the peaks above 5,000 and 4,000 m.

    Impressive work. Those are some beautiful photos. You're lucky to be from somewhere like that.
    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Baltit Fort or Balti Fort is an ancient fort in the Hunza valley in the Northern Areas of Pakistan.In former times survival of the feudal regimes of Hunza was ensured by the impressive Baltit fort, that sit on top of Karimabad. The foundations of the fort are said to date back around 700 years, but there have been rebuilds and alterations over the centuries. In the 16th century the Thum married a princess from Baltistan who brought master Balti craftsmen to renovate the building as part of her dowry.

    Few pics from Sindh Province

    Ranikot Fort is the world's largest fort with a circumference of about 26 km or 16 miles.
    The original purpose and architects of Ranikot Fort are unknown. Some archaeologists attribute it to Arabs, or possibly built by a Persian noble under the Abbasids by Imran Bin Musa Barmaki who was the Governor of Sindh in 836. Others have suggested a much earlier period of construction attributing to at times the Sassanians Persians and at times to the Greeks
