Punjab is a region in South Asia shared by India and Pakistan. Most of the Punjab is an alluvial plain, bounded by mountains to the North. The high peaks are accessible from Rawalpindi, Pakistan or from Srinagar, India. Srinagar is the capital city of Jammu and Kashmir, which has long been a popular resort area because of its relatively temperate climate in an otherwise torrid region. The highest peaks of this region are Nanga Parbat (26658 ft./8125 m) and the towering twin summits of Nunkun.
