Afghanistan mountains


Check out these magnificent aerial views of Afghanistan's Hindu Kush Mountains, compliments of contributor and drone pilot mustafa12.  Essentially the western end of the great Himlayan Mountains system, the Hindu Kush run for about 800 km (around 500 mi.) across Afghanistan and into neighboring Tajikstan and (northern) Pakistan.  Their highest peak, which is actually in Pakistan, is roughly 7.7k meters above sea level or around 25.3k ft.  The system was created when the Indian subcontinent collided with Asia roughly 55 million years ago.
