16 Days Shimshal Mingling Sar (6200m) Trek Pakistan
Shimshal Mingling Sar (6200m) Trek
Altitude: 6050m - Max: 4350m
Duration: 16 Days
Best Time: June - September
Minglig Sar (6050m) is located in the Shimshal Valley in Hunza neighboring the Chinese southernmost mountain range Kun Lun. Shimshal Lake sits at the base of the mountain near the Shimshal Pass (4735m).
This exciting trip takes you through the Shimshal gorge in the proximity of Wakhan Corridor and high pasturelands of the mysterious Pamirs on the dividing line between South Asia and central Asia. You will see large herds of yaks, sheep, goats and sometimes ibex grazing on these high grasslands. Snow leopard often visits these pastures for a goat or yak meal.
In our journey we will come across steep passes, glaciers, lakes and beautiful valleys. The famous historical Shimshal Pass was the route of Hunza raiders on trade carvans traveling over the Karakoram Pass between China and India in ancient times.
The trek to Minglig Sar starts from Shimshal Valley (3000m) to Wuch Furzeen (3365m) which is 7-9 hours walk. From Wuch Furzeen to Shuijherav (4350m) is 6-8 hours walk. It takes 3 hours to reach Shimshal Pass from Shuijherav. Shimshal Pass is the most pleasant camp sites near the crystal icy lake. It is possible to climb Minglig Sar from here in one day but requires good physical fitness, acclimatization and obviously good luck with weather.
One of the great attractions and the highlight of this climb is that from the summit with some luck one can have a glimpse North Face of K2 far on the south eastern horizon.
