Durham University Karakoram

This group of university graduates and undergraduates planned to study the geological evolution of the Nanga Parbat syntaxis, a unique structure in the Karakoram mountains. However, to their surprise, the subject outcrop was inaccessible in the field area, so they had to turn their attention to other features. They concentrated on an igneous body (the Jutial Pluton) exposed in the study area, which enabled them to study the evolution of the syntaxis from a different perspective.
