Karakoram Range. Start walk from Askoli and through flower-carpeted ablation valleys, we encounter challenging as well as more straight forward trekking conditions. A highlight of the trip is the camp on the Hishpar La (5151m), where we can watch the afternoon shadow creeping across Snow Lake to the mighty Ogre (7285m), experience the adventure of trek in great Karakorams .Stunning scenery and a genuine sense of adventure in a high mountain wilderness are key attractions of this magnificent trek.
Crampons are needed for these crossings but some scrambling may be required to cross the lateral moraines.
You should only consider this trek if you have some previous trekking experience in the mountains, preferably at altitudes over 4000 meters (13,000 feet).
