The Siachen Glacier is located in the eastern Karakoram Range in the Himalaya Mountains. It is 70 km (43 miles) long. It is the longest glacier in the Karakoram and second-longest in the world’s non-polar areas. Including all tributary glaciers, the Siachen Glacier system covers an area of 700 sq km (270 sq miles).

The glacier lies between the Saltoro Ridge and the main Karakoram Range. The major passes on the Saltoro Ridge are; Sia La at 5,589 m (18,336 ft), Bilafond La at 5,450 m (17,880 ft), and Gyong La at 5,689 m (18,665 ft).

Pakistan and India are fighting in this area since 1984. It is the highest battle field area in the world. The climate is very harsh and in winter, the temperatures drop to −50 °C (−58 °F). Incidentally more soldiers have perished in Siachen from severe weather conditions than from war.
