The Kamakorum may be tall mountains, but an altitude of 59 km (59,000 m) sounds impossible. Would you like to edit or explain this entry?

Hello Chris, 59km is the altitude the image is taken from, not the altitude of the mountain.

Greetings,

Christoph

On the foreground, left, it is not the Biafo-Hispar but Siachen Glacier. At the center, Gasherbrum, Broadpeak and K2. Left of the center, Baltoro Glacier, and behind it the Biafo-Hispar glaciers.
