Pakistan Glaciers amount to the greatest mass and collection of glaciated ice in the whole world apart from the North and South Poles. The Mountain ranges of Northern Pakistan are host to some of the greatest glacier systems outside the Polar Regions.

Mostly concentrated in the Karakorum range and followed by Himalaya and Hundukush Ranges, theseglaciers cover an area of about 13,680 square kilometres, which is 13% of the mountainous regions in the upper Indus River Basin.  The total length of glaciers on the lap of Karakoram in Pakistan is above 6160 square kilometres. According to estimates, almost 37% of the Karakoram region is under the glaciers.
