Pakistan - May 23rd, 2011

Originating in the Tibetan plateau of western China in Tibet, the Indus River flows down from the snow-capped Himalayas (top right) and across Pakistan, towards the Arabian Sea.

The river flows in a southerly direction along the entire length of Pakistan, and merges into the Arabian Sea (visible at the bottom of the full image) near the port city of Karachi in Sindh. The total length of the river is 3,180 kilometers (1,976 miles) and it is Pakistan’s longest river.

Here, the Indus River Valley appears drier less green than it often does, although this is partially due to a veil of dust hovering over the area (best observed in full image).
