Remarkable trekking routes in Pakistan

The Great Karakoram Traverse Trek

Hushe Nagar/Hunza via 2 high pass crossings-unrivalled mountain scenery.

A combination of our established Gondogoro La, K2 and Snow Lake treks

Starts from the south-east at Hushe and ends in Nagar/Hunza to the north-west

Excellent Snow Lake route over the Hispar La (5151 M) into Nagar/Hunza

A combination of our established Gondogoro La, K2 and Snow Lake treks, this 5-week expedition must rank as the ultimate Karakoram challenge which starts from the south-east at Hushe and ends in Nagar/Hunza to the north-west. Starting out from the Hushe Valley, we cross the Gondogoro pass (5585 M) into Concordia, where we allow time to visit K2 Base camp before set ting off down the Baltoro Glacier to the snout of the Biafo Glacier. From where we follow the excellent Snow Lake route over the Hispar La (5151 M) into Nagar/Hunza. This is a sustained and strenuous high level adventure in a remote location, with more of the feeling and logistics of an expedition than a trek. The trek is tough though but the reward is greater.
