Home to some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world, colorful cities and thriving markets, Pakistan is opening to the world, charming us with untouched nature at the confluence of 3 mountain ranges. This season we invite you to join us on a trip to Hunza, part of Karakoram, and experience the striking beauty of the snow peak mountains, glacier lakes and at the same time complete with us all of 8 stans!
Hunza is situated at an elevation of 2,438 meters in the northernmost Pakistan, bordering with the Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan and the Xinjiang region of China.

We will start this amazing journey in Islamabad and fly north to Gilgit, into the stunningly spectacular scenery until we will find ourselves far north from Kashmir, close to Pamir Range. On our day hikes we will reach glacier lake and will pass across the remote villages without access to civilization for several months in the winter.
Our main consideration as always is trip safety, so you can leave this part to us. All areas we will visit are safe.
