Trek through one of the most remote parts of Karakoram. This 22-day mini expedition has 15 nights camping and 5 nights in hotels. You will enjoy the climb of a 6,000 meter trekking peak. It is situated in the heart of Karakoram Range in Shimshal, the most remote valley in the whole range. Its mountains are some of the toughest, with some high virgin peaks with this background we take you to an ascent of a 6,050 meter high trekking peak. We will start the trip from Islamabad and drive on the legendary Karakoram Highway to Passu towards upper Hunza, from where we take 4×4 jeeps to enter the valley. It takes two days to reach the main village of Shimshal. From the village, it is a 4-day trek to the base camp of Minglik Sar. After the peak attempt, we take a six days trek over three passes to arrive at Karakoram Highway, just south of Khunjerab Pass on Pakistan-China border.
