Product Description

This model of the Baltoro Glacier in the Karakoram region contains not only the second-tallest mountain in the world (K2, at 8611m), but four more from the top 20: Broad Peak (8051m), Gasherbrum I (8080m), II (8034m), and the monolithic Gasherbrum IV (7925m) which towers over the head of the Baltoro. All of this stark and extreme beauty exists in a mere 900 square km of remote northern Pakistan on the border with China. It is truly an alpinists paradise. We hope you enjoy this, the TinyMtn model with the largest land area, and become inspired to see the Baltoro in person.

The Explorer series of TinyMtn models is designed to break our usual impression of mountains. We generally see mountains one at a time, from a distance, and from the ground. While all TinyMtn models give you a fresh perspective on any one peak, the Explorer series presents mountains in identical scale, and shifted up so that sea level is at the bottom of the base. Thus, when you set two Explorer models next to each other, you will immediately notice which is taller, which rises more from its base, which is more massive, and so on. Plus, all Explorer models come in full color, making them just that much more realistic.

Model scale is 1:250000
Model covers an area approximately 30.1 by 30.1 km
Altitudes covered: 4158m to 8611m
There is no vertical exaggeration applied to this model. This is a true-to-life scale model of a real place.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here.

These models have been optimized for the above materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please tinymtnbiz@gmail.com and we'll do our best to fulfill your request.
