Full description

Experience the confluence of the highest mountain ranges of the world: Karakoram, Himalayas and Hindu Kush as you travel along the Karakoram Highway, reputed as the 8th wonder of the world, through the dramatic, deep gorges of the Indus: the Lion River. Spend a few days in Hunza Karimabad Walk to the glaciers flowing down from the soaring peaks

Drive on the Karakoram Highway (KKH) via the beautiful lush green valleys of Mansehra District. The highway was a joint project between Pakistan and China and took 20 years to complete. During its construction 300 Chinese and 600 Pakistani workers lost their lives.

Visit Gilgit, the capital of Pakistan’s Northern Areas. Stop at Thalichi, the best view point of Nanga Parbat (8125m) the 9th highest peak in the world and the second highest in Pakistan after K2 , which is also known as the Killer Mountain. There are also spectacular views of Rakaposhi (7788m) and the Haramosh Range from the same spot. As we drive north we reach the meeting point of the world’s three highest mountain ranges – the Karakoram , Himalayas and the Hindukush. At this amazing place the Gilgit River also joins the mighty Indus.

Spend a free day in Karimabad with time for short walks to the Altit and Baltit forts, and for more exploration of the Hunza Valley. There are superb views of the Karakoram Range from here - Rakaposhi 7788m, Diran 7266m, Ultar 7400m, Golden Peak 7027m, along with glimpses of the Nagar Valley on the other side of the river. The friendly, long-lived people of the Hunza are almost self-sufficient, growing wheat, maize, apricots and walnuts and making their own clothes, shoes, and wooden and stone bowls. In the afternoon there will be time to walk to the Ultar Glacier by following the irrigation channel through the village, or to stroll through the single-lane bazaar to enjoy more spectacular views of the mountain peaks soaring around you. Drive to upper Hunza valley and drive to Pak – China border “Khunjerab Pass” highest metal road border crossing in the world.

Walk to the Passu Glacier and Passu Lake (45 minutes one-way). From the snout of the glacier there are spectacular views of Shispar (7611m) and Passu Peak (7478m). Visit the famous suspension bridges of Passu. These 800 feet long bridges over the Hunza River are still used by the local people.
