Partly fantasy, partly reality, it is a landscape of extremes – stark desert, blue waters, burning sun, freezing winds, icy glaciers and arid sand-dunes. Bounded by two of the world’s mightiest mountain ranges – the Great Himalayas and the Karakoram – this never-never land is also a trekker’s paradise.
