Pakistan Biafo Hisper Trek (Skardu Hunza Nagar) - [ Trekking ]

Range:             Karakoram

Altitude:          Min : 600m - Max: 5151m

Zone:               Open

Duration:         22 Days

Best Time:        Mid June - End September

The trek starts by following the K2 Base Camp trail and then turns west onto the Biafo Glacier. Biafo and Hispar glaciers meet at Hispar La making this system the greatest concentration of glacial ice outside Antarctica. This series of glacier connects two ancient mountain kingdoms; Hunza/Nagar in the west with Baltistan in the east. Snow Lake area was described by the famous mountaineer explorer Eric Shipton as ’the last blank on the map’. Towering high above Biafo and Hispar glaciers are jagged peaks, these include Kanjut Sar (7,760m), Distaghil Sar (7885 m.) Makrong Chhish (6,607m), Latok group (Latok I: 7,145m, Latok II: 7,108 m, Latok III: 6,949m, Latok IV: 6,456m) and Baintha Brakk/The Ogre (7,285m).

Biafo and Hispar Glacier, passing through 30 square miles and 1.5 km thick snow Lake. Having reached the highest point of our journey on Hispar La at 5151m, we begin the descent into Hunza; this is a region where the language and culture is very different to Baltistan. Our trek will capture something of this pioneering spirit, as we traverse the Biafo and Hispar glaciers, and explore the main divide of the Inner Karakoram. From Askole we follow the first few stages of the K2 trek before diverting up the Biafo Glacier.
