About Jammu & Kashmir (India)Satellite view is showing Jammu and Kashmir, India's northernmost state. The former Princely State of Kashmir and Jammu, also known as part of the Kashmir region, is subject of an ongoing territorial conflict among India and Pakistan and China.
Jammu and Kashmir is situated in north west of India in the Himalayan Region, bordered in west by Pakistan's Azad Kashmir division, in north by Gilgit-Baltistan, the Pakistani territory formerly known as the Northern Areas, to the north east by the disputed border area of Aksai Chin, now administered by China, in east by the Autonomous region of Tibet, and in south by the Indian states of Punjab and Himachal Pradesh. The Kashmir region, the former princely state of Kashmir and Jammu, is disputed among China, India and Pakistan.
India has control of about 60% of the area of the former princely state (Jammu, Kashmir Valley, Ladakh and Siachen Glacier); Pakistan controls 30% of the region (Gilgit–Baltistan and Azad Kashmir). China administers 10% (Aksai Chin and Trans-Karakoram Tract) of the state since 1962.
With an area of 222,236 km², the state is about the size of Great Britain (island), or slightly smaller than Minnesota. The state's geography offers some of India's highest mountains, separated by valleys, like the Kashmir Valley, Tawi Valley, Chenab Valley, and Poonch Valley. The region is also the site of several Himalayan glaciers.
Highest mountains are the Saltoro Kangri/K10 (7,742m), Saser Kangri massif (K22 7,672 m), and Mamostong Kangri (7,516 m).
Major rivers are the Indus, the Jhelum River, Tawi, Ravi and Chenab. Wular Lake in the north western corner of J&K, in the Bandipora district is one of the largest fresh water lakes in Asia.
Capital cities of Jammu and Kashmir are: in Summer - Jammu, the largest city in the state, and in Winter - Srinagar.
More than 12.5 million people (2011 census) live in India's northernmost state that consists of three regions: Jammu, the Kashmir valley (Vale of Kashmir) with a predominantly Muslim population, and the mountainous Ladakh region with a population who are predominantly Tibetan Buddhists. Official languages are Urdu, Kashmiri, and Dogri, an Indo-Aryan language.
There are endeavors for Ladakh to be constituted as a union territory because of its religious and cultural differences with Kashmir.
