Today the rout was changed, as it was hazy and the sun was getting low so there I found the TUK2 peak at the background of this rock.

Hello Muhammad,
And to think that these layers of limestone were horizontally deposited in a sea and now they outcrop in a very dry area on land and folded and tilted from their original disposition. Have they been checked for sulphide ore deposits? I suppose so.

Salam Musa sahab!
Hope you are fine. This is a fine shot of limestone outcrop as Neels has mentioned. These tilted layered rocks are the evidence of tectonic disturbances on our land that occurred millions of years ago. When rocks are exposed in form of outcrops they are under constant weathering and erosion by different agents like wind, water, snow etc. Thanks for sharing this fine shot,
Best Regards,
