    Precambrian rocks exposed north of Besham in the Nanga Parbat area are divided between the Iskere Gneiss, Shengus Gneiss, and Haramosh Schist (Madin, ). Radiometric dating implies that these units are equivalents of the Besham Complex, Mansehra-type granites, and the Karora Formation (Zeitler and others, ).   tectonic elements of pakistan 1. tectonic elements of pakistan it includes: kohistan-ladakh magmatic arc indus plate form and foredeep east balochistan fold-and-thrust belt northwest himalayan fold-and- thrust belt karakoram block kakar khorasan flysch basin and makran accretionary zone cragai magmatic arc pakistan offshore.

The Nanga Parbat–Haramosh (NPHM) massif is a unique structural and topographic high in the northwestern corner of the Himalayan convergence zone. Previously, the NPHM was thought to be bounded by the Main Mantle Thrust (MMT), a fault along which the Kohistan-Ladakh island arc was obducted onto the northern margin of India.

Detailed mapping and geochronologic investigations from the eastern, southern, and western Nanga Parbat Haramosh massif reveal two thrust-displacement shear zones that have a spatial and temporal link with granite plutonism from ca. 10 to 1 Ma. The shear zones define a crustal-scale antiformal pop-up structure, with dominant west-northwest vergent and subordinate east-southeast vergent thrusting.

ern Nanga Parbat–Haramosh massif reveal two thrust-displacement shear zones that have a spatial and temporal link with granite plutonism from ca. 10 to 1 Ma. The shear zones define a crustal-scale antiformal pop-up structure, with dominant west-northwest–vergent and subor-dinate east-southeast–vergent thrusting.

Quartz-rich feldspathic gneisses from the Nanga Parbat-Haramosh massif, India, show surprisingly high levels of anisotropy of up to % and 21% for P-and S-wave velocities, respectively. In the Himalaya of northwestern Pakistan, small discordant bodies of leucogranite intrude metamorphosed basement of the Indian crust.

The region around the mountain of Nanga Parbat has some of the highest peaks, deepest valleys and highest uplift, exhumation and erosion rates known on Earth. Surrounding regions include the Hindu Kush and Karakoram mountains (Asian plate), the Kohistan island arc and the Ladakh and Zanskar ranges of the western Himalaya (Indian plate).

This article summarizes an exploratory study carried out to investigate the significance of various geomorphic features on the formation of observed knickpoints along the upper Indus River in northern Pakistan.

These features include bedrock lithology, active faults, sediment flux from tributary channels, and landslide dams which have blocked the main channel. An Upwardly-Mobile Indentor.

Edwards, W.S.F. Kidd and M.A. Khan \/ [and others.The Himalayan chain has long been recognized as a spectacular example of the result of continent—continent collision, in this case, the result of the closure of Tethys and the subsequent collision and indentation of the Indian plate into the collage of plates or terranes that made up Central Asia some 50 Ma ago.

Although the effects of that collision are recognized over a much larger region.Miarolitic granitic pegmatites in the Stak valley in the northeast part of the Nanga Parbat - Haramosh Massif, in northern Pakistan, locally contain economic quantities of bi- and tricolored tourmaline.

The pegmatites form flat-lying sills that range from less than 1 m to more than 3 m thick and show symmetrical internal zonation. A narrow outer or border zone of medium-to coarse-grained.
