Ice age: In the shadow of glaciers

The beautiful Bagrote Valley is not far from Gilgit town, only around two hours drive away, but the road to Bagrote is a narrow, winding track that wraps around a mountain and the going is slow. Even before one reaches the main village of Bagrote with its green terraced fields and fruit orchards, one can see the valley glaciers in the distance.
