     The Northern Mountains of our country occupy a very strategic position due to these reasons 

    1. Due to its high altitude the Himalayas act as Natural Barriers and the Neighbouring countries accept it as international boundary 

    2. They are the Natural reservoirs of the water 

    3. Water is Produced by Melting of snow and it is used for irrigation as there are number of             premiere rivers. 

    4. Natural sites for generating hydro electric power are present in abundance. 

    5. The region is very beautiful and attract tourists from home and abroad. 

    6. These mountain protect the plain areas of Pakistan from the cold winds of central Asia during       winters.
