Road access in the Gilgit Baltistan is very good these days. So, instead of walking from village to village, most of the time you will start your trek near the last villages, sometimes a day’s walk or less from the snout of a glacier and just a matter of days from the base camps of the high peaks. The terrain is wild and spectacular. Some of the treks involve many days traversing glaciers and moraines. The main trekking season is from June to September when mountain temperatures are pleasant, the days are longer and the flowers are in bloom.

Most of the trips start and/or end with PIA’s domestic flight to/from Skardu. Sometimes bad weather or back log can prevent flying in which case one must travel overland instead, for which adequate time is needed to build in the itinerary. Such occurrences are a part of adventure travel and we ask for your patience and understanding if an overland journey becomes necessary. Overland travel, through the Karakoram Highway, is by private coach, minibus or jeep, depending on the size of the group and will probably be the most spectacular journey of your life

 Gondogoro Peak & Hushe Valley
(A moderate trek and climb in the heart of Karakoram)
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
The Gondogoro Peak (5650 M), situated in Gondogoro Valley, presents the perfect challenge for the accomplished trekkers or hill walkers seeking a first Himalayan Summit, as it is located in the heart of Karakoram and offers an ascent with little in the way of technical difficulty for objective danger. The first part of the trek involves walking up the Masharbrum valley to Masharbrum base camp at 4400 meters.
Back to Hushe and then the second part of the trip involves ascending the Gondogoro Valley. Camping at Saitcho, a beautiful spot at the junction of the Gondogoro and Charakusa Valleys and Dalsiang Pa, by a beautiful lake, in the valley of Gondogoro directly opposite the vast and chaotic ice fall which tumbles down from the Masharbrum La are spectacular. Walking the upper ridges of the Gondogoro glacier to the base camp, there are close -ups of many incredibly beautiful 6000 meter - plus peaks, with perhaps the most striking being " Laila Peak ". No previous mountaineering experience is required to climb, but the ascent is quite strenuous due to the altitude. Setting off at 1 am would be reasonable to expect to be on the summit at 7 or 8 am and to be back in camp by lunchtime. Ropes are used for only the last 100 Meter of the climb in a couple of places. The group will normally be well on its way to the top of Gondogoro by the time the sun catches the summit of Masharbrum and paints it a surreal pink. The panorama from Gondogoro of Masharbrum Chogolisa, Hidden peak, Trinity peak, Laila Peak and the Gondogoro glacier stretching down the valley as yet still in the early morning shadow is worthy of any superlative
