Biafo Glacier (37 miles long) and Hispar Glacier (38 miles long) meet at the 5151 m. Hispar Pass to form one of the longest glacial systems outside the Polar Regions. This highway of ice connects two ancient mountain kingdoms: Hunza in the west with Baltistan in the east. In olden times warriors from Nagar would use this natural pathway to invade the peoples of Askoli in Baltistan. Later on the well known sport of "Polo", a Balti word meaning ball, served as a more positive outlet for aggression between these two kingdoms and matches were played on stretches of level ground in this locality. Because the Biafo-Hispar region is very remote it serves as the last stronghold for many animals; including Himalayan bear, ibex, markhor and the snow leopard
