For safety reasons, it is very important for us to know about chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, hypertension, epilepsy or others if they occur in any of the participants of the trip.

Day 1. Transfer from the airport to the hotel, afternoon visit to Islamabad: Faisal Mosque, Marghala Hills, dinner at des Perdes, Monal lub Aylanto

Day 2. Transfer from Islamabad to Naran (accommodation)

Day 3. Transfer from Naran to Skardu through Deosai National Park, rest in Skardu, afternoon tour of Fort Kharpocho, Katpana Lake and Sadpara Lake

Deosai National Park was established in 1993 to protect the Himalayan bear. It is the second highest (3,500 - 5,200 m above sea level) plateau after the Tibetan Plateau. The amazing space, wonderful meadows, rivers and lakes that we pass and the snow-covered Karakoram chain approaching every kilometer allow you to experience this journey very intensely.

Day 4. Transfer from Skardu to Hushe (3 048 m a.s.l) by jeep (accomodation in tents)

Hushe is the last village of the Ghangche District in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. It is the highest village in the once remarkably remote and impoverished Hushe valley. In the 1960s, men from Hushe started working as cooks and porters on mountain expeditions, and thus the living conditions in the village gradually improved. It is no longer the poorest village anymore, as its popularity as a trekking and climbing destination continues to grow. Climbers and hikers arriving via the Gondogoro Pass from Baltoro Glacier, Concordia or the K2 Base, descend to the village of Hushe to reach Skardu. From this valley you can also go to the Gasherbrum massifs and Masherbrum also known as K1 (7 821 m above sea level)

Day 5. Start trekking from Hushe to Shaicho (3 150 m. a.s.l.) – (accomodation in tents)

Day 6. Trekking from Shaicho to Spangsar (~4000 m. a.s.l.) – (accomodation in tents)

Day 7. Trekking from Spangsar to K6, K7 Base Camp (4600 m. a.s.l.) – (accomodation in tents)

K6 (7,282 meters above sea level) is also known as Baltistan Peak. This is a notable peak in the Masherbrum Mountains, the Karakoram subband in the Gilgit Baltistan region of Pakistan. Despite being much lower than its sister mountains, the eight-thousanders and 7,000-meter-high peaks such as Masherbrum has enormous, steep walls and its glorious, imposing silhouette rises majestically above the nearby valleys. It is the highest peak surrounded by the Charakus Glacier, which forms at the foot of Baltistan Peak and flows north and then west as far as Hushe. This glacier feeds the Hushe River (Saltoro), which is a tributary of the Shyok River flowing into the Indus River. From its eastern foothills flows the K6 Glacier, which is part of the Kaberi Glacier and forms the Kaberi River Valley. To the southwest of the summit is the small Nangmah (or "Nangpah") glacier

The first ascent of the K6 took place in 1970. It was made by an Austrian expedition led by Eduard Koblmueller. It was composed of Gerhard Haberl, Christian von der Hecken and Gerd Pressl. They climbed the southeastern ridge of the Nangmah Glacier. The expedition originally planned to climb Malubiting, but the Pakistani government withdrew this permit after the team arrived in the country. Instead, they were assigned K6. The Himalayan Index lists three additional unsuccessful attempts at K6.

K7 (6,934 meters above sea level) is also known as Ghursay Kangri. It is located in the immediate vicinity of K6 in the Charakusa Valley. Slightly lower than its imposing neighbor, it is distinguished by a regular beautiful pyramid shape. There is no information so far that anyone has reached this summit.
