 The World Highest Peaks

There are 14 more than Eight thousand peaks in the world, 5 are in Pakistan 8 are in Nepal, and one is in china, these famous peaks are the world attraction for climbers trekkers and mountain lovers.
The famous peaks are lying on these mountain ranges of different countries in Asia.

Pakistan
K-2 (8611m) Karakorum- Nanga Parbat 8126m Himalaya- Gasherbrum I 8068m Karakorum- Gasherbrum II 8035 m Karakorum- Broad Peak 8047m Karakorum.

Nepal
Sagar Matta (Everest) Himalaya 8848m- Kangihun Jumga 8586m- Anaparna 8091m- Dha Lagire 8167m-Chooyo 8201m- Lhotse 8511m- Makalu 8463m- Mansulu 8163m- China Shishapangma Panor 8027m-

The above mentioned peaks are climbed bravely from different time, Goodwin Austen and his party has a great contribution, also T.G Mentugmeries and Rcf Shamberg who have Explored the great mountain ranges in Asia.

We are thankful to the Italian Expeditions and Explorers with wham’s Excellent work the world attraction composed to these mightily peaks. However Achille Compagnoni Lino Lacedelli. The first climber of K-2 and Harman Buhl, the first climber of Nanga Parbet cannot be forgotten until and unless the mountaineering Expedition will exist, Or those Expeditions who have climbed these peaks con not be forgotten in the next Generations until when this interest will end.

The pride has been received by many Pakistanis, which the majorities are from Hunza valley.
Most probably there are many Pakistan or European, young generation, who are interested to climb these peaks, Due to Economic reasons they cannot afford.  The future of these are very bright for tourism industry to help people in the Remote Area in Asia.

It is true that the Economy can be up graded with tourism industry in Asia as well as in Pakistan.

Neelum Valley (also spelled Neelam Valley) (Urduوادیِ نیلم ‎) is a 144 km long bow-shaped thick forested region in Azad Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistan Administered Kashmir. It is named after the Neelum river, which flows through the length of the valley.

The valley is situated in the north-east of Muzaffarabad, running parallel to Kaghan Valley. The two valleys are only separated by snow-covered peaks, some over 4,000 meters (13,000 ft) above sea level.

The valley is connected from Muzaffarabad by Neelam road, which leads up to Kel. The road condition from Muzaffarabad to Athmuqam is very good and suitable for any kind of transport. From Keran to Kel road condition is not well and not suitable for low floor vehicles. In winters road onward Keran is blocked due to heavy snowfall and it is very difficult to reach upper parts of the valley.
