As the debate over demilitarisation of the world's highest battle field continues, take a look at some images of the disputed region.

Indian Defence Secretary Shashikant Sharma recently led an Indian delegation to hold talks with a Pakistani team headed by Defence Secretary Nargis Sethi at the garrison city of Rawalpindi near Islamabad. The talks were widely expected to be dominated by the issue of demilitarization of the Siachen glacier - the world's highest military battlefield, where harsh weather has killed more soldiers than actual fighting. However, despite a series of talks on the issue, the neighbours have failed to reach any agreement so far.

Even as the countries await a negotiated end to the confrontation in Siachen, we take a look at some images from the breathtaking landscape of the region.
