Bartang Valley | Pasor Dam

WI_tj664.jpg

View towards W. This dam, with an estimated volume of 1-1.5 cubic kilometres, was most probably created by a large rock mass movement, even though there is evidence of glacial deposits included in the dam material. The release area of the landslide is clearly visible in the central background of the photo.
