    @Wajahat:
    You are right. These mountains are off shoot of Hindukush Range. The most visible mountain in this areas is Falak Sher. Many visitors are told that its K2….Karakoram mountain range starts from north west of Gilgit and Indus rivers converging point. At that point, all three great mountain ranges Karakoram, Hindukush and Himalaya meet. Perhaps most important location on earth.

    @Mohammad:
    Thanks for your concern. I have been to Malam Jabba few times and have noticed it too. Before Taliban’s take over, this area was like a rain forest. They funded their Jihad with this precious resource of environment and beauty.

    Enchanting landscape? As I see the heavy deforestation has already destroyed this “enchanting landscape”.

    Has the resort in Malam Jabba been rebuilt? I remember it was quite beautiful, was quite upset that it was burnt down by the Taliban. A german ski’ing instructor taught me how to ski, he was there with his family but volunteered to teach a group of us beginners. An amazing place – unlike anything else in PK.
