Tirich Mir of Hindukush Trek
|Altitude:||Min : 600m - Max: 4724m|
|Best Time:||June - September|
The Hindukush lies beyond the reach of the monsoon and, is a deserted, arid mountain scape visited by very few. The scenic Tirich Valley is very fertile, and populated with several small villages. A spectacular drive to Uthul takes us to the jump off point, and trekking across Zani Pass (3886m) provides excellent views of Hindukush and the Hindu Raj Ranges. Passing through the villages of Atak and Bandak, one arrives Shogor, at the foot of the Tirich Glacier. A free day will enable us to explore and will, allow for fantastic views of Tirich Mir (7708m), Istoro Nal (7403m) and heavily crevassed upper Tirich Glacier. Visit legendary Kafir Kalash of Chitral, and the historical Khyber Pass, before your return journey to Islamabad via Taxila. A lifetime memory of a very remote, undisturbed wilderness.
