(Paiyu- Khoburse)

Description: Today we take our first steps on the Baltoro Glacier, reaching it after around 90minutes walking. This is a tough day, taking around eight hours as we climb on the rocky moraine of the glacier, but the sight of Baltoro pinnacles and Paiyu Peak is astounding!

Description: Urdukas will be our center point for this day where we will have lunch. From Urdukas onward all the activity takes place on the glacier – walking, eating and sleeping. However, it’s always been fascinating adventure and the snow-capped mountains in the surroundings must absorb your attention as long as you are there. One can have the best views of mighty mountains guarding the Baltoro Glacier- at 62 kilometers long, is one of the longest glaciers outside the Polar Regions. The Baltoro Muztagh lies to the north and east of the glacier, while the Masherbrum Mountains lie to the south.

(Ali Camp-Gondogoro-2-Khuspang La)

Description: Reaching up to an altitude of 5700m above sea level, Gondogoro La (GGLA) is considered slightly technical and has to be done with fixed ropes. An early start at 2 or 3 O’clock in the morning to cross the Gondogoro La. The basic theme behind the early walk to reach the top of the Gondogoro Pass 5700 meters is that in the morning snow will be soft and you will not get tired quickly as the sun is not strong, but as the sun gets hotter, snow gets softer, increasing chances of avalanches, rock falls, and decreasing traction on ice

About The Host: Trip North.. Here, we intend to make people happy by letting themselves free from all the worldly tensions. Our motto is to promote the importance of physical as well as mental health for the members. A person can’t give his/her best unless he/she is physically and mentally fit. At least a trip, per annum, enjoying the company of nature in the hilly and greenish mountains of Pakistan’s northern areas will serve the purpose. Our team at Trip .n is dedicated to investigating, scheduling and leading an array of activities ranging from the cultural to the physical to the somewhat off-the-wall. Once a member, you decide which activities appeal to you and fit into your schedule. It couldn't be more convenient. There is no pressure and only a few requirements, the first being that you have fun.
