Biafo & Hisper Glaciers have a total length of 126 kms and are the longest in the world outside the Polar Regions. They meet at the 5,150 meter-high Hisper Pass. This giant high way of ice and stones connects the antique kingdoms of Nagar in the West and Askoli (little Tibet) in the East. This route was extensively used to connect the Silk Route with the Indian Sub-continent, China and Tibet. Tales of the yeti are plentiful here. We end at the beautiful Hunza Valley, also known as the Valley of Eternal Youth. It is home to the most progressive people in these northern areas. In Karimabad, we visit Altit and Baltit forts and get rooftop views from Baltit fort is an unforgettable experience. The people of Hunza are known for their longevity in the world. Glaciologists after conducting tests on the snow lake confirmed that the snow layer here is one mile deep. Here one can observe the rare species of animals in abundance like snow leopards, Himalayan bears, ibex, markhore, and sometimes the rare Marco Polo Sheep
