Baltistan also known as Little Tibet is a mountainous region in the Karakoram Mountains range. Baltistan borders Gilgit to the west, Xinjiang (China) in the north, Ladakh on the southeast and the Kashmir Valley on the southwest. Its average altitude is over 3,350 metres (10,990 ft).

The region is inhabited primarily by Balti people of Tibetan descent.
