The stunning summer full course summer trek take in some of the most scenic views in the Karakoram and Himalaya range, along with spectacular Deosai National park.
FAIRY MEADOW: Fairy Meadows is the launching point for trekkers who wants to climb the the Nanga Parbat, the 9th highest mountain in the world and second in Pakistan after K2. The first part of the road can be driven by a 4x4 vehicle, but the concluding sections, all the way to Fairy Meadows, needs to be traversed by foot or by a bicycle owing to the congested narrow lane.
RUPAL: The Rupal Valley is located in the Astore District of Pakistan's Gilgit-Baltistan region. It lies just south of 8,126 meter Nanga Parbat and is popular for treks to the mountain's Rupal Face, one of highest mountain faces in the world. . The Rupal is home to Shina speaking herdsmen, who have grazed and harvested wood in the valley for hundreds of years. Overgrazing has caused some loss of vegetation, leading to wind-blown dust. Towering peaks on either side of the valley make it a breathtaking, albeit remote destination for adventurers. Most treks to the Rupal Valley begin in the village of Tarashing, at the southwestern terminus of the Astore Valley.
DEOSAI: Treks to the Deosai Plains, the second highest in the world at 4,114 metres (13,497 ft) above sea level, after the Chang Tang in Tibet, either start from or end at Skardu. In the local Balti language, Deosai is called Byarsa, meaning 'summer place'. With an area of approximately 3,000 square kilometres (1,158 sq mi), the plains extend all the way to Ladakh and provides a habitat for snow leopards, ibex, Tibetan blue bears and wild horses.
SKARDU: Skardu, along with Gilgit, is a major tourism, trekking and expedition hub in Gilgit–Baltistan. The mountainous terrain of the region, which includes four of the world's 14 Eight-thousander peaks, attracts tourists, trekkers and mountaineers from around the world. The main tourist season is from April to October; except at this time, the area can be cut off for extended periods by the snowy, freezing winter weather.
Accessible from Skardu by road, the nearby Askole and Hushe are the main gateways to the snow-covered 8,000-metre (26,000-foot) peaks including K2, the Gasherbrums, Broad Peak, and the Trango Towers, and to the huge glaciers of Baltoro, Biafo and Trango. This makes Skardu the main tourist and mountaineering base in the area, which has led to the development of a reasonably extensive tourist infrastructure including shops and hotels. The popularity of the region results in high prices, especially during the main trekking season.
Numerous climbers regard this region as having some of the finest mountain scenery anywhere in the world. At Gondogoro Pass, one overlooks to the northeast what Galen Rowell termed the "Throne Room of the Mountain Gods." Apart from dozens more, one can see the following famous peaks from the pass:K2(Choghori) BroadPeak ,Masherbrum,Laila Peak,Gasherbrum I,Gasherbrum II,Gasherbrum III,Gasherbrum IV.
Much of mountaineer climb on the giant of Baltoro whereas not far, the superb valley of Charakusa, Kharidas, Nangma, Humbroq and is growing by isolated towers and superb granite spires which remain out of the world.
Biafo & Hishper glaciers combine together forms the world,s longest glacier out side the polar region. The Snow Lake & the Hishper pass give an unmatched trekking experience. After seven hours jeep journey from Skardu the trek will begin at Askole for the 115 km ice corridor trek walking on dancing stones, crossing splashing streams, camping on the summer pastures on the lateral moraines, crossing the 5150 m Hishper pass & four major side glaciers, We will end up the trek at Hishper village, the first permanent settlement after leaving Askoli
The first seat of power of the formerly Hunza State was Altit. Later it shifted to Baltit (modern-day Karimabad). Until the fall of princely state in 1974, Baltit served as political center of Hunza and hence its capital. Today, Baltit is one of the major tourist destinations in Hunza. The center of activities has however shifted to the nearby Aliabad, which is a commercial hub in the region and has most of the governmental infrastructure.
