  • Day 08

    Baintha to Marphogoro (4350m) Camp, trek. seven to eight hours of walking. Getting on to the glacier is tricky. Once on it, the walk is pretty straight forward on the white glacier. However, we are careful to avoid crevasses here. The greenery of Baintha campsite is only a memory now. We are in the dramatic and awesome expanse of the Biafo with its jagged pinnacles. The Ogre (7,813 m.) towers high above us on our right. There is only snow and rock now. Overnight at Marphogoro Campsite.

Even though the climb is on gentle slopes, we find it difficult due to the rarefied air. When on top we see a panorama described by an early explorer: “Beyond all comparison the finest view of mountains it has been my lot to behold.” On one side the Biafo lies and on the other side we look towards the Hishper Glacier and the peaks above Hunza valley. The view of sunrise from the pass is another sight to behold. Overnight at Hishper pass Campsite.
  • Day 12

    Hishper La Kani Basa (4500m): Camp, trek. This is a long day’s walk and can take more than 8 hours. We want to make sure that we leave the pass early before the snow becomes soft. On the way down, once again, we are careful to avoid crevasses. We will have to cross the Kani Basa Glacier before we can camp on a green campsite, which is a welcome sight and site after being on snow for the last few days. On the way we can see the famous Kanjut Sar (7,760 m.) towering high above the Kani Basa Glacier. Overnight at Camp Kani Basa campsite.

  • Day 14

    Kani Basa to Jutmal (4200m): Camp, trek. This will take about 7 hours and on the way we will cross the Jutmal Glacier. It is tricky here as the route through the glacier is like a maze with high ice walls. After crossing it, another hurdle that we face is the climb up on a loose Hispar Glacier. Some streams have to be crossed on the way. Overnight at Jutmal Campsite.
  • Day 15

    Jutmal to Bitanmal (3600 m): Camp, trek. This section takes about 8 hours. On the way Pumory Glacier is crossed and also a stream. The crossing of Pumory is not that difficult as the Jutmal.

Overnight at Bitanmal Campsite.
  • Day 16

    Bitanmal to Hishper Village (3400 m): Camp, trek. Another short day of about 4 hours. Some streams have to be crossed on the way, but the walking is relatively gentle. A bridge over the Hispar stream has to be crossed and then a climb on a good path brings us into the village proper. It is strange to see habitation as the villagers gather around us. Overnight at Hishper Village Campsite.
  • Day 17

    Hishper Village to Karimabad. After breakfast descend in jeep along a bumpy road for about 2 hours until we reach the Karakoram Highway (KKH).
