The gneisses of the Nanga Parbat–Haramosh Massif (NPHM), Pakistan, experienced peak metamorphic temperatures in the interval from 25 to 30 Ma, as revealed by 40Ar/39Ar cooling ages of hornblende and the ages of the youngest intrusions of the Kohistan batholith located immediately adjacent to the NPHM. 40Ar/39Ar and fission-track mineral ages indicate that the postmetamorphic cooling history of the NPHM has been controlled over the past 5 to 10 m.y. by active tectonism associated with the Raikhot Fault, although passive uplift and erosion in response to overthrusting of the NPHM by the Kohistan Arc...
