India opens Siachen for trekkers

In an interesting development, India has opened up the Siachen Glacier to trekking for enthusiasts who would like to experience the dizzy heights and the cold of that place.  Now, that this place has ceasefire enforced…. Pakistani army will be further pressurized to not do anything when tourists – specially the Westerners – are coming over.  It is no secret that Musharraf coveted this area and his Kargil attempt was an answer to India’s Siachen.
