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.
