ISLAMABAD, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -‘Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are?’ Have you ever looked at the night sky and wondered how many stars you could see? Take a look at the Milky Way seen from Pakistan.

Pakistan’s Deosai National Park may be one of the best places to enjoy a starry sky, as Deosai Plains are situated at an average elevation of 4,114 metres above sea level and considered as the second highest plateaus in the world.

The park is a high-altitude alpine plain and national park in Pakistan’s northern Gilgit-Baltistan region.
