Description :
This paper concentrates on the Recent and Pleistocene sediments produced in the Karakoram glacial and paraglacial environments in terms of their sedimentological characteristics, landforms and the processes that produced them. Two main types of glaciers can be differentiated based on the landforms in their lower reaches : 1) Ghulkin type, dominated by ice-contact fan landforms| 2) Pasu type, dominated by hummocky moraines and glaciofluvial outwash plains.
