Kashmir is a land-locked region in South Asia found between the borders of India, Pakistan,
and China. The region is enveloped by the Himalayas, with the Indus River and its tributaries flowing

has been the subject of a decades-long dispute which is testimony to one of the biggest and
bloodiest military occupations in the world.
