Exploaration of the Karakoram Range 1


IN the communication referred to below H.R.H. the Duke of the Abruzzi gives a very interesting account of his expedition last summer to Baltistan, in Kashmir territory, undertaken with the object of ascending K2, the highest peak in the N.W. Himalaya, as well as to investigate the physical features of that range, which his previous mountain work in North America and Africa would render so valuable by comparison.
