To give a full pleasure of isolation and mountain panorama we have blended two valleys of the Hushe Region, the Mashabrum and Saraksa. The beautiful mountains, exciting landscapes, and remote villages are the attractions of this tour. Encounter with shepherds is another delight of this program.
From Skardu 140 kilometers driving along the Indus and Shuyok rivers we will reach Hushe village in seven hours. The Mashabrum valley offers an easy and very interesting trek. Starting at Hushe village, the trek traverses the lateral moraines of the Mashabrum glacier up to the base camp (4280m) of the majestic Mashabrum peak (7820m), the 27th highest peak in the world.
In the second phase the Chogolisa and Saraksa will be explored. This moderate trek takes you to one of the least explored regions of Baltistan. The trails meander through mountain corridors with full of alpine flowers during the summer. The trekking trails runs along the Saraksa Glacier up to the foot of K-6, K-7, and Chogolisa peaks.
