Pakistan - Hunza Valley & Fairy Meadows (Nanga Parbat BC)

"Nature is such a friend of ours, we don't lose until death; and even after death we disappear into nature." (Tolstoy)

Culture, traditions and the majestic Karakoram range, the world’s largest ice-bound mountain! The Hunza Valley, an embodiment of the most exquisite nature on earth! An unforgettable journey along the valley to the Chinese border (the Khunjerab Pass, the highest border crossing in the world – 4700 m above sea level)! Trekking in the world’s two highest mountains – the Himalayas and Karakoram at one go – the base camps of Nanga Parbat (8126 m) and Rakaposhi (7788 m). One of the most mesmerizing treks in our history :)

Pakistan’s northernmost province Gilgit-Baltistan is the meeting point of the three highest mountain ranges on earth – the Himalayas, Karakoram and Hindu Kush. This is the land of deep river valleys – the Indus, Shigar, Gilgit, Braldu, Hunza, walled by 6- and 7-thousanders. The stunning Hunza Valley is nested near the border with Afghanistan and China. The original Silk Road used to cross the valley on the way to China. Hunza is often referred to as Shangri-La, or heaven on earth.
In the past, the visit of the Hunza Valley required a special permit, but this changed once the Karakoram Highway was completed in 1979. The highway is known as the 8th wonder of the world and its construction claimed thousands of lives.
The other highlight in our journey, Nanga Parbat, needs no introduction. This awe-inspiring and humbling mountain is one of the most charismatic 8-thousanders! Its first ascent was performed by Hermann Buhl, a member of the 1953 German-Austrian expedition. The first winter ascent took place only recently, in 2016.

Itinerary:

Day 1 

Flight Sofia-Islamabad. We arrive early at the airport and check in at the hotel. Our local team are highly experienced in the mountaineering business. They have assisted some of the top climbers for the past 40 years. They helped us complete successfully the rather difficult trek to the K2 base camp and the crossing of the Gondogoro La in 2019. If we have time, we will visit the old town of Rawalpindi, the centre of Islamabad and the Taxila Museum.

The package tour covers three meals a day; Overnight stay at a hotel.
