Indus River, Pakistan

Indus River, Pakistan

The Indus River is a vital resource to the people of Pakistan and India. In this section of its more than 3000km run, the Indus serves as the boundary between Punjab to the East and Azad Kashmir to the West. Fed by glacial runoff and seasonal melting, the river flows along relatively steep terrain and cuts across geological folds and faults around the location of this image. 100 km upstream is the Tarbela Dam, a hydroelectric facility that has a 3500MW capacity.
