11 days

If you decide to explore Pakistan for the first time... If you want to get to know this country a bit and admire its naturalness and diversity... If you want to take a break from trekking at high altitudes for a while... If you don't have much time and you dream of meeting with an EIGHT THOUSAND meter - this proposition is for you...

We want to break stereotypes. We want to show you that even if you don't have much experience in high mountains, the Himalayas are also for you. That you can spend a wonderful time here getting to know places that have been little changed by humans. Which have retained their natural beauty, which still remain real, not commercial... We want to show you people who often live very modestly, but maintain a smile and good spirit. Maintaining the principles of hospitality. We want to show you a country where, thanks to the actions of the authorities, you can feel safe, a country where the development of safe tourism, contrary to popular belief, is a priority.

Many people are not sure whether they will cope in a country like Pakistan, a place with a completely different culture, a different way of life, and which does not have a good reputation in the media. Many people want to check what it's really like, and quite a few mountain maniacs want to feel the breath of the KILLER OF CLIMBERS - Nanga Parbat - at least for a moment.

For such people, we offer a mini-trekking trip to the Nanga Parbat Base Camp.

It will be a time of pleasure and admiring wonderful views. A time of joy, challenges, but above all, rest.

Once you arrive at Islamabad airport, we will welcome you with joy. We understand that after a long journey you need some time for yourself to regain your strength for lunch and visit the city's attractions: Pakistan Monument Museum, King Faisal Mosque, Marghala Hills (Daman e koh). Once you get to know this unusual capital a little bit, we will take you for dinner at a Pakistani restaurant. And the next day we start our journey north, to the most picturesque part of Pakistan. First, we will go to Naran, partly through the famous Karakoram Highway, which, due to the very difficult conditions in which it was created, is called the eighth wonder of the world. It is one of the highest highways in the world, and due to frequent landslides, it is considered one of the most dangerous highways in the world. In the evening we will go to see a traditional market full of handicrafts, wooden furniture and trinkets, traditional costumes and dried fruits.

Later, we will have an amazing journey to Raikot Bridge through the high Babusar Pass (4,175 m above sea level), which has been used for travel since the 16th century. On the way we will stop at the picturesque Lulusar Lake. For some travelers, this road is a big challenge. It sometimes happens that inexperienced drivers have difficulty navigating it and cars do not survive the route due to radiator or brake failure... After reaching Chilas and Jaglot, we will stop at one of the most important points in the world, where the Gilgit River flows into the Indus. This is the place where the three largest mountain ranges meet: the Himalayas, the Karakoram and the Hindu Kush. After reaching Raikot Bridge, we will take a jeep to Tatto and from there walk to Fairy Meadows (3,250 m above sea level). The ride from Rajkot Bridge to Tatto offers stunning views of the Rakhiot Valley and provides a lot of excitement and a good dose of adrenaline. Some tourists consider this road the most dangerous in the world. Just a few-hour walk with Tatto allows you to appreciate the beauty and extraordinary charm of the Valley, and the Nanga Parbat massif, the "killer of climbers" (8,126 m above sea level), enclosing it, arouses respect and admiration. After reaching Fairy Meadows, we can see that this place fully lives up to its name. It is a destination for many trips, attractive to both foreign tourists and Pakistanis. The wonderful Fairy Meadows are one of the wonderful viewpoints of Nanga Parbat, and the peace and quiet that reigns here allows you to relax and enjoy the wonderful panorama of the ninth mountain in the world. However, for us this will be only one stage of our journey. We will go even further and higher. First to Beyal Camp, and then - through two viewpoints from which you can clearly see the Rakhiot Glacier lying at our feet - to the Nanga Parbat Base Camp (~4,000 m above sea level). This day will be quite intense, but the route we have to cover and the beautiful surroundings mean that the time will not be long. After returning to Fairy Meadows, we will have time to rest and explore the area. Later, we will return from Fairy Meadows to Raikot Bridge, from where we will go to Gilgit, which was an important city on the Silk Road from the 3rd to the 11th century. It was the most famous trade route but also a corridor along which Buddhism spread from South Asia to the north and west.

The next point of our journey will be Passu in the Hunza Valley. On the way, we will see the wonderful turquoise Attabad Lake, which was created after the great earthquake of 2010 and quickly became one of the biggest tourist attractions in the region. The amazing turquoise color of the water makes Attabad Lake stay in your memory for a long time. Many people consider it one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. We will also see the legendary Hussaini suspension bridge. It is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Pakistan. The bridge suspended over the Hunza River is 164 m long and has a structure typical of pedestrian footbridges in Pakistan. The boards from which it is built do not touch each other, but are placed with gaps of about 30 cm so that when we cross the bridge below we see a flowing river. The steel cables that make up the bridge structure are set in motion by people passing by and cause the entire structure to wave. In windy weather, crossing the bridge may pose a real danger of falling into the river. After the accident in 2022, you can only overcome it if you wear a life jacket. Despite this, every season many tourists take up the challenge of crossing the bridge, although many give up after crossing a small part of it...

The glacial Borit Lake, located in a charming, quiet valley, is our next destination. It is worth paying attention to the characteristic rock formations related to the time when the majestic Karakoram chain was just being created. From there we will take a short visit to the Passu Glacier, which is connected to the Batura Glacier and many other glaciers in the Batura Muztagh mountain range. It is also called the "Ocean of Ice" because of its size and the great impression it makes on travelers and climbers. The crevassed glacier and the majestic, fairy-tale Passu Ridge look amazing. Both the sunlit and cloud-covered peaks constitute one of the most magnificent mountain panoramas.

And here will begin our return journey through the Babusar Pass to Naran and to Islamabad. Just a day of rest and preparation for the journey in Islamabad, transfer to the airport before departure and the end of the journey...

This expedition, like our other events in Pakistan, has another huge advantage - it allows you to experience the natural beauty of nature and adventure. It differs from events organized in commercial places, where only the known name of the place is important, but the number of tourists staying there at the same time makes it impossible to truly "experience" these places...

Therefore, if you want to taste ADVENTURE, if you want to get to know the REAL culture and tradition, if you want to commune with NATURE minimally changed by man - come with us to Pakistan
