Amazing combination of two of the world’s most interesting and beautiful treks. Gondogoro La via Baltoro Glacier and the Panoramic Trek which goes through Snow Lake and Hisper La. During this trek we traverse two main passes of Karakoram. From the top of Gondogoro La we’ll have a breathtaking view of Masherbrum, Hidden Peak, Chogolisa, Trinity Peak, Lela Peak and the Gondogoro Glacier. The trek starts at Hushe Valley and goes through some of outstanding mountain views. The trek is bit difficult and is recommended for good trekkers. The journey to giant Baltoro begins at Skardu, the capital town of Baltistan Biafo & Hisper where they meet at the 5,151 meter Hispar Pass. Snow Lake is situated between two Glaciers the Biafo and Hisper Glacier. It ends in Hispar further to Karimabad, the Capital of former Hunza State. In Hunza we visit to the ancient Altit and Baltit Forts standing on mountain cliffs. On our journey back to Islamabad is on Karakoram Highway also known as “eighth wonder of the world”.
Gondogoro Pass to K2 base camp trek is the most popular trekking and mountaineering area in Pakistan and Concordia trek is known as the most spectacular trek of the world, the traditional expedition route to K-2 (second highest peak on earth). Eight of the world’s 30 highest peaks of the world stand around this magnificent trek. The apex of this incredible trek is Concordia one of the biggest piedmont glaciers of the world. Rows of needle spires, granite towers, shining glaciated mountains and snowy domes line the glacier, providing perhaps the greatest mountain scenery in the world. Some of these magnificent mountains in the Karakoram range are Masherbrum , Mustagh tower , K-2 , Broad Peak, Gasherbrum IV , Sia Kangri Golden Throne , Mitre Peak , Chogolisa and Hidden Peak.
Biafo Hispar Trek, a river of pure white driven snow, less vast only than Snow Lake below, bounded on either side by chains of lofty nameless “Snow Kings” – Workman 1905. First it was explored by Sir Martin Conway in 1892. Later, the Workman Brothers in 1905 & further discoveries were made by Eric Shipton in 1939. The highlight of this trek is a great traverse across the Biafo-Hispar Glaciers – the longest ice corridor on earth. Our goal is “Snow Lake” the biggest junction of glaciers on Earth, located north – East of these two gigantic glaciers. Encircled by unexplored & unnamed lofty peaks, it has a breath taking spectacle. The Workman’s called Snow Lake “A huge basin of ice & snow that seemed in no way of this world.”
