In the north of Pakistan the Karakorum range of mountains are split from the Greater Himalaya by the mighty Indus river which has its source over the border in China. Containing the world's second highest summit, K2, as well as numerous peaks over 7000m, the mountains of the Karakorum are wild, jagged and divided by deep, steep sided valleys. Since the completion of the Karakorum Highway (the Kunjerab pass over to China was opened in 1986), these Northern Areas of Pakistan have become easily accessible to the tourist. With access via jeep roads well up into the high valleys, the Karakorum provides us with some excellent trekking in what would otherwise be a very remote area.

This two part trek visits two valleys which branch off the main Hunza valley, nowadays the main link over to China via the Kunjerab pass. On both parts of the trek we will be rewarded with some spectacular mountain views. Our treks here go well above the permanent settlements and hence the going underfoot can be rough. Landslides do occur fairly frequently and roads and paths can get blocked causing delays and diversions. Inclement weather can cause flights to be cancelled. We have built a degree of flexibility into our program to allow for these possibilities, but if you like a guarantee of everything going exactly to plan then this is not the tour for you! For most people however the more memorable bits of this type of holiday are the bits that went 'wrong'.
