Day 1

On arrival, where you will be meet the AMT staff member  at Islamabad International Airport and transferred to hotel in Islamabad drive for 45 minutes

Day 2

Fly to Skardu

On this day we have two option (A) The plan is for our whole group to catch an early morning flight to Skardu (55 minutes), the largest city in Baltistan. If the weather is clear, we can catch some truly incredible  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 your trekking staff. or (B) If we are unable to take our flight on the morning of day two because of bed weathere, it is possible that we will have to drive overland to Skardu from Islamabad (17-18 hours). This is long journey on road travel to KKH. AMT staff will evaluate what the best options are for the group and go from there. Flying is obviously the best case scenario! To break up the drive, we would sleep in Chilas for the night before pushing on to Skaru the next day.

Day 3

Shopping Day in Skardu

Today, the AMT team is busy food shopping and packing all of the group supplies. Guests 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. After excursion we will have dinner again as a group before setting off in the morning. 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!)

As of 2021, jeep road  has been extended and able to reach till Jhula camp site. The journey from Skardu takes between 9 and 10 hours depending on road conditions. which means we can now start the trek from Jhula camp instead of Askoli – which saves us a day of hot, dusty trekking on the road. We will eat lunch in Askoli or before the way some lunch point.  We will arrive at Jhula in the late afternoon and sleep at a permanent trekkers camp at Jhula.
