This is a trek something completely off the beaten track – remote, far from civilisation, and we hope because of this to capture some of the spirit of early exploration.  Shimshall Valley must rate as one of the most remote areas of the Karakoram Himalaya.  The villages appear like oases in the barren mountain landscape.  It was not far from here that Colonel Francis Younghusband had his celebrated encounter with his Russian counterpart, Captain Grombtchevski.  This was during the period of the ‘Great Game’ when the British Raj was completely paranoid about the Russian Empire sending their troops over the passes and down into India.  On the trekking we might see Marco Polo sheep wolf, blue sheep, Tibetan ass and the ever-elusive snow leopard .

The mountain scenery is no less impressive and awe-inspiring than elsewhere in the Karakoram and the largest mountain that you will see is Distaghil Sar, 7,885m.  We would certainly recommend this trek to anyone who likes the idea of a tough trek where the itinerary may change on a daily basis and which takes you through very wild country.
