Trekking Tours in Pakistan
Biafo & Hispar glaciers have a total length of 126 kms. and are the longest of their kind out side of the Polar Regions. They meet at the 5150 meters high Hispar pass. This immense highway of ice and rock connects the antique kingdoms of Nagar in the West and Askoli (little Tibet) in the East. This route was extensively used to connect the Silk Route with the Indian Sub-continent, China and Tibet. Mr H. W. Tilman, an English trekker claimed in 1937 that he had seen the footprints of Yeti on the glacier. .
The same way used to serve the people of Hunza to invade Askoli, which later served as a more progressive way between Hunza and Askoli as the people of Hunza came over to Askoli to play POLO with the people of Askoli.
This life-long experience ends at the beautiful Hunza Valley; the Valley of Eternal Youth & home of the most progressive people as compared to other parts of Northern Areas. In Karimabad, we visit Altit and Baltit Forts and enjoy the view from the roof-top of the Baltit fort which is an unforgettable experience. The people of Hunza are known for their longevity in the world. Glaciologists after conducting tests on the snow lake confirmed that the thickness of snow is one mile deep. Here one can observe the rare species of animals in abundance like snow leopards, Himalayan bears, Ibex, Markhore and some times the Marcopolo Sheep.
