A view from Concordia (part1).
" Throne Room of the Mountain Gods."
Concordia is the name for the confluence of the Baltoro Glacier and the Godwin-Austen Glacier, in the heart of the Karakoram range, northern Pakistan it is sometimes described as the "throne room of the mountain Gods", because of the exceptional mountain needles ripping open the clouds in blue expanse from the 5000m floor. Four peaks above 8000 m. sit within a radius of only 21 km. from Concordia, honoring this site with the largest concentration of the highest peaks on earth, as well as a number of important lower peaks.
