The Hindu Raj is a mountain range in northern Pakistan, between the Hindu Kush and the Karakoram ranges. Its highest peak is Koyo Zom, 6,872 m (22,546 ft). Other notable peaks include Buni Zom[1] and Ghamubar Zom. The range is less well-known than its neighbors, partly because of the absence of any 8000 or 7000 meter peaks.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Sources disagree on whether Buni Zom is in the Hindu Raj or the Hindu Kush.
