The Karakorams are home to the highest concentration of peaks over 8 kms in height to be found anywhere on earth, including K2, the second highest peak of the world (8,611 m).
The range is about 500 km in length, and is the most heavily glaciated part of the world outside the polar regions. The Karakorams are bounded on the northeast by the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, and on the north by the Pamir Mountains. The southern boundary of the Karakoram is formed, west to east, by the Gilgit, Indus, and Shyok Rivers, which separate the range from the northwestern end of the Himalayas.
