Original file(5,600 × 4,400 pixels, file size: 10.79 MB, MIME type: image/jpeg)


English: high Asian mountain ranges and their highest mountains:
  • Tien Shan – Jengish Chokusu is outside the picture,
  • Kunlun Shan – Kongur Tagh. Note: Some sources count Kongur to the Pamirs. Liushi Shan, the highest mountain of Kunlun Shan not counting Kongur is outside the picture
  • Pamir – Kongur Tagh (if not counted to Kunlun Shan), Pik Imeni Ismail Samani (if Kongur belongs to Kunlun Shan)
  • Hindu Kush – Tirich Mir >> HERE MISTAKE IN THE MAP: The last 2½ letters of "Hindu Kush" are in the Hindu Raj mountain range which spread out eastwards to the huge S-shaped Indus valley (crossing the first letter of "Nanga Parbat")
  • Karakoram – K2
  • Himalayas – Nanga Parbat is the highest mountain of the western Himalayas, there are of course seven higher Eightthousanders in the eastern Himalayas
  • Ladakh Range – no prominent high peak labelled

Deutsch: Die innerasiatischen Hochgebirge:
  • Tien Shan – Der Dschengisch Tschokusu liegt außerhalb des Bildes
  • Kunlun Shan – Kongur Tagh. Achtung: Häufig wird der Kongur zum Pamir gezählt. Liushi Shan, der höchste Berg des Kunlun ohne die Kongur-Gruppe, liegt außerhalb des Bildes
  • Pamir – Kongur Tagh (wenn er nicht zum Kunlun gezählt wird), Pik Imeni Ismail Samani (wenn der Kongur zum Kunlun Shan gezählt wird)
  • Hindukush – Tirich Mir >> HIER FEHLER IN DER KARTE: Die letzten 2½ Buchstaben von "Hindu Kush" liegen im Hinduraj Gebirge welches sich ostwärts bis zum großen S-förmigen Indus-Tal erstreckt (verläuft durch das "N" von "Nanga Parbat")
  • Karakorum – K2
  • Himalaya – Der Nanga Parbat ist der höchste Berg des westlichen Himalayas, allerdings befinden sich im östlichen Himalaya noch sieben höhere Achttausender.
  • Ladakh Range – kein markanter hoher Berg ist markiert
