Overview

Book
We are pleased to once again offer this superb 2-week trekking and climbing holiday to arguably the world's most spectacular mountain area, the Karakoram. We begin this adventure with a dramatic mountain flight to Skardu in Baltistan and a drive alongside the Indus and then Shyok rivers to the village of Khaplu. Proceeding to Hushe on the next day, we find ourselves nestled deep within the Karakoram Mountains. We have been bringing groups to Hushe for more than thirty years and our groups have provided funding for several projects which have helped the Hushe villagers. As a result, Our groups are always assured of a warm welcome from this friendliest of Karakoram villages.

After an acclimatisation period in the dramatic valleys above the village, we trek up beside and then on the Gondogoro Glacier to a grassy 'ablation zone' below Gondogoro Peak. This is the place known as Huisprung and was the basecamp for the very first ‘trekking peak' holiday in 1986. After setting up our camp here, complete with lakeside reflections of sensational peaks such as the slender spire of Laila, we have a further day to acclimatise and to practice our skills and ropework. The culmination of the holiday is the ascent of the technically straightforward Gondoro Peak. Needless to say, the views from the summit are sensational! It's great to be offering this classic trip once again.

Highlights

    • Trek on the Gondogoro Glacier beneath the beautiful spire of Laila Peak
    • Climb Gondogoro Peak which, in 1986, was the very first KE trekking peak
    • Experience the culture and hospitality of the friendly Balti people
    • Sneaky view of K2 from the Honboro Valley above Hushe
