Within just 2 weeks, we do the gentle trek (two different routes) to the base camp of Nanga Parbat (8125m./26650ft), the world's ninth highest peak and 2nd highest in the Himalayan range of Pakistan. After driving from Islamabad to Chilas on the amazing Karakoram Highway, we transfer by 4x4 jeeps to the villages of Tato or Tarashing and make the short walk to our next camp. Camping beneath Nanga Parbat “The sleeping beauty” is an unforgettable experience. We have time to trek to the mountains base camp and nearby viewpoints. The second half of our journey is based around the picturesque old Hunza capital of Karimabad, where our selection of day hikes and excursions includes an amazing variety of sights, such as the Utar Icefall and the
bustling bazaar at Gilgit. The trekking that we will be undertaking on these trips is all on good trails. Walking up to Fairy Meadows is very straightforward, but the optional day hike up to Nanga Parbat base camp does involve a relatively long day of trekking. Similarly, there is another longish trekking day on our hike above Karimabad to the meadows below Ultar. This is a steep climb and will provide the most challenging day's walk of the trip. Generally, however, this is not a sustained trek and we do have lots of time to rest and to enjoy the scenery between trekking days.
