  1. Hindu Kush

    The Hindu Kush, also known as Pāriyātra Parvata or Paropamisadae, is an 800 km long mountain range that stretches between central Afghanistan and northern Pakistan. The highest point in the Hindu Kush is Tirich Mir in Chitral District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. It divides the valley of the Amu Darya to the north from the Indus River valley to the south. To the east the Hindu Kush buttresses the Pamir range near the point where the borders of China, Pakistan and Afghanistan meet, after which it runs southwest through Pakistan and into Afghanistan, finally merging into minor ranges in western Afghanistan.
