Pakistan - March 30th, 2011

The Indus River is the most important river in Pakistan, and also the longest river. It begins in Tibet and flows into the Arabian Sea. The river system is fed mainly by snow and glaciers of the Himalayas.

This image focuses on the Indus River Valley, south of the Himalayas. The valley is green and vegetated, with rivers appearing as tan lines (the color is due to sediments), and towns and cities appearing as tan circles and dots.
