Introductions:

Biafo Hisper The central Karakoram, first explored and mapped in 1937 and 1939, is perhaps the wildest of all. It is an area of vast glaciers, high mountains and remote passes. Length of Biafo Glacier is 68 kilometers / 42 miles long with a total area of 625 sq. km, which starts from Korofong above Askole village. Hispar Glacier is 52 Kilometers long. It is only the Hispar pass, which separates the Hisper and Biafo Glaciers. However, most geographers consider the two glaciers as one; they call Biafo-Hispar Glacier. If that be so then the 120 kilometers / 75 miles long BIAFO- HISPAR Glacier probably becomes the second longest glacier in the world (outside the Polar Region). It connects the ancient mountain kingdoms of Hunza and Baltistan. It is really special because of its immensity – it is 16 km long and together with the both glaciers it creates the longest glacial traverse (110 km) outside the poles.

The trek consist of an easy hike of about 10-13 days depending on weather and condition of hikers. It is completely isolated with no regular communication network. No regular trail marks or signposts exist mainly due to shifting nature of the glaciers. Some campsites are marked though. Food and other resources need to be hauled. I have provided a link at the bottom to the tour guides which helped us in acquiring a guide and porters for the trek.

Approaching Snow Lake following a broad highway of Ice, a huge glaciated basin at 4500 meters, there could be a couple of crevasse areas where it will be necessary to rope up. Here we have the opportunity to view Biantha Brakk, (7284 m), Snow Lake peak and Simkiang glacier. From here we ascend the Hispar La and camp on the summit, which gives us a panoramic sunset and sunrise views of the whole Biafo - Hispar.

Day 1
Arrive at Islamabad airport where you will be met our Guide or staff ,and transfer to Hotel. It will 45 minute drive from Airport to Islamabad. We recommend arriving in Islamabad at least one day early so that you can settle in and be ready to go on the morning of day one.
Day 2
The plan is for our whole group to catch an early morning flight to Skardu (50 minutes), the largest city in Baltistan. If the weather is clear, then we can catch some truly stunning views of Nanga Parbat and other massive peaks in the area. Once in Skardu guests will have free time throughout the day to rest and to explore the city and the bazaar. Today, we will finalize our trekking permits at the local government office and have dinner together as a group. Over dinner, you will be properly introduced to our GUIDE,STAFF for the duration of the trek,
Day 3
A. Today, the team is busy food shopping and packing all of the group supplies. Clients have free time in the city during the morning and early afternoon. In the late afternoon (time permitting), we will visit the Kharpocho Fort as a group for those who want to come. We will have dinner again as a group before setting off in the morning. B.If the group is arriving overland from Islamabad, the entire schedule is bumped back a day, to allow for a day of rest in Skardu (that is why we schedule in buffer days!)
Day 4
Today, our adventure begins in earnest! Our team will assemble early at the hotel and after breakfast, we will load up the 4×4 jeeps and begin the bumpy, dusty drive to Jhula – the gateway to Central Karakoram National Park. The journey from Skardu takes between 7 and 9 hours depending on road conditions. We will eat lunch nearly Askoli and around. We will arrive at Askoli in the late afternoon and sleep at a permanent trekkers camp.
Day 5
The trek starts by following the Biafo Glacier. The trail ascends over a shoulder to reach the left moraine and descends on to the glacier then back on to the left bank where the grassy camping site called Namla is located behind a lateral moraine.
Day 6
After crossing a fracture zone on the glacier we reach the center of the glacier where we follow moraine ridges, underfoot there is loose rock making this a challenging day. We set up camp on the left bank of the Biafo in a grassy area
Day 7
The route continues up the center of the glacier on a broad highway of ice making the walking easier than yesterday. We cross to the right and come off the glacier to a grassy area where Baintha camp is located.
Day 8
This is a rest day for you and the porters in order to help with acclimatization to the high altitude. You can relax in camp or if feeling energetic walk up a ridge behind the camp with fine views of Latok group and The Ogre. Look out for Ibex that can often be seen on grassy slopes above.
Day 9
This is a rest day for you and the porters in order to help with acclimatization to the high altitude. You can relax in camp or if feeling energetic walk up a ridge behind the camp with fine views of Latok group and The Ogre. Look out for Ibex that can often be seen on grassy slopes above.
Day 10
Today we walk to the south end of a large snowy flat area known as Snow Lake finding our way through a network of crevasses. Snow Lake is a high-altitude glacial basin over 16km wide at the head of the Biafo and Hispar glaciers. Martin Conway, the first foreign visitor, gave Snow Lake the name in 1892 and described this area as “beyond all comparison the finest view of mountains it has ever been my lot to behold, nor do I believe the world can hold a finer.”
DaY 11
Today we traverse across the vast Snow Lake area and make the ascent to Hispar La. The climb to Hispar La is not too steep although it always feels quite strenuous at this altitude, we also have to be aware of the crevasses in this area. The views at Hispar La are fantastic looking down Biafo Glacier to Snow Lake and The Ogre and another side down Hispar glacier to peaks in Hunza.
Day 12
After an early start, we descend from Hispar La crossing a crevassed area, and then later on the glacier flattens out. We have to cross Kani Basa glacier which is a fracture zone where the two glaciers collide. Shortly afterward we reach our camp located in a grassy ablation valley with good views of Kanjut Sar (7,760m).
Day 13
This is a challenging day as we have to find our way through a series of moraine ridges; climb a loose scree slope then cross several glacial streams. Jutmal camp is on a grassy area along the side of the glacier.
Day 14
The route continues up the center of the glacier on a broad highway After an hour we descend down a steep bank to cross another side glacier then back to the valley as before where the walking is good. Camp at Bitanmal is in a large meadow often used by herders from Hispar village.
Day 15
We make the last side glacier crossing over the Kunyang Glacier, then walk up by a steep path and cross a stream to get to the meadows at Falaling Chhish.
Day 16
A. From our camp at Falaling Chhish we cross a bridge to reach Hispar village. You will certainly notice the vibrant green of the orchards and terraced fields after the black and white scenery of the Hispar Glacier. B.Depending on the condition of the road we may meet our jeeps in the village if the road is broken then we have a further walk followed by a short drive to our last camp on this trek.
Day 17
We take a jeep for a couple of hours to Nagar village along a rather narrow track before reaching the Karakoram Highway. We drive up the road to Karimabad where we check into a boutique eco-lodge in Aliabad and the rest of the day is free to wash up, relax, and just chill the F out after so many days of trekking.
Day 18
Hunza valley is truly spectacular and today we have the chance to explore Karimabad, it is an interesting town spectacularly situated on a hillside to the north of the road with views of the fertile valley below (due to their extensive irrigation system) and a glimpse of snowy mountains. We will visit Altit Fort – which is more than 1000 years old, once the home of the ruling Hunza king dynasty
Day 19
