KIU Gilgit Inter, FA/FSc Result 2012, HSSC-II, Karakoram University
Karakoram international university announces the FA, FSC result on dated 11-September-2012.
The Karakoram International University (KIU) is located in Gilgit, the administrative capital and largest town of the Gilgit-Baltistan of Pakistan.
The Gilgit – Baltistan have the unique distinction of being the converging point of three of the mightiest mountain ranges in the world, namely, the Himalaya, Karakoram and Hindu Kush. These ranges have many of the world’s highest peaks and the world’s largest concentration of glaciers outside the Polar Regions. In the Karakoram’s alone 30 peaks soar over 24,000 feet (7,500 m) and culminate in the 28,250 feet (8,612 m) high K2, second only to Mt. Everest in elevation. Sheer rock walls and ravines, plunging thousands of vertical feet down to the rivers flowing below, mark the scenery.
This astounding landscape is the result of the collision of the Indian tectonic plate with the Eurasian plate in this region about 40 million years ago, which is quite recent in geological history. The youth of the Gilgit – Baltistan mountains is reflected in their jagged peaks and continually rising elevations. Nanga Parbat is rising at a geologically dizzying rate of 7 mm per year, which is one of the quickest in the world.
