Gorgeous Tao Butt valley in Kashmir, Pakistan [Amazing Photo of the Day]


That is Tao Butt valley, the last civilian valley in Kashmir, Pakistan — or Azad [Free] Kashmir, as we like to call it on this side of the border.

With Pakistan often in the news for the wrong reasons, it is easy to forget the beauty that can be found in the violence-ravaged country. This is just one example. You can check out dozens of more photos from the via links below.

And be sure to give a shout out to my wife, who pointed me towards these gorgeous shots.

    [@JMJ] I’m not entirely sure myself. However, I believe it means the rest of the vallleys in the area are either no longer inhabited by humans or are inhabited by the military since it is a disputed region.

    It looks like a fantasy, cozy land I would have loved to call home as a child: Lush fields to lie in and watch clouds float by, forests to explore and a river to fish/swim in. Gorgeous.

    What do you mean, “… the last civilian valley…”?
