Re: Kargil War Thread - VI

What was the highest battle fought at Kargill?
I read somewhere it was 16,500 Ft is this true?

My interest is mountaineering and I read somewhere on BRF that the Indian army has fought battles at 18-20,00 ft does anyone have any information on this please?

Thanks in Advance.
