The Siachen Glacier is one of the most beautiful yet dangerous places on the entire planet. The steep set of passes located in the Karakoram range of the Himalayas is also known as the “Third Pole” for its extreme winters. The average winter snowfall is more than 1000 cm (35 feet) and temperatures can dip to −50 °C (−58 °F). Including all tributary glaciers, the Siachen Glacier system covers about 700 km2 (270 sq mi).
It is also the highest battleground on earth.
Yes, our brave troops have fought and fended off enemies for decades here. And they’re still at it all the while sitting thousands of miles away from their families, braving the wrath of nature.
