This spectacular trek takes us to one of the most remotely inhabited areas of the Karakoram. To find Hunza traditions still alive, you need to travel to more difficult and remote valleys like Shimshal. Our drive takes us through all of the Hunza Valley, and the trek leads past rugged. mountains, through a narrow gorge, which opens up at the Shimshal Village, where about 120 families of 1000 Shimshal people, all of them Ismaili live in the hamlets surrounded by terraced and irrigated fields. Spend a free day for exploration before your out bound trek on the same route.

The couragious, and well acclimtised can cross over Chapchingal Pass (5150m) down to Kuksel Stream, and back to the Karakoram Highwaybelow Khunjerb Pass. This rewarding trek takes you to Zargarbin Pass, (4600m) and Shimshal Pass (4735m) and the high pastures lands worth visiting.
