Interesting Places # 78 – Siachen Glacier

At 6,300 meters (20,700 feet), the Siachen glacier is the world’s highest battlefield.

(After partition in 1947 no one bothered to extend the line of control between Pakistan and India up to this height because no one thought it was worth bothering with. Since then it has become the ultimate symbol in the dispute over Kashmir. Which goes to show you something, I’m just not sure what.)
