Biafo- Hispar Snow lake Trek, Pakistan - 24 Days

Tourbeschreibung auf Deutsch:

Einer der herausforderndsten Treks von über 100 km, der aber die Anstrengung reichlich belohnt, ist die vollständige Überquerung der zusammen 110 km langen Biafo und Hispar Gletscher, der durch das etwa 700 qkm große Gebiet (Gletscherfläche ca. 300 qkm) von Snow Lake führt. Es war der Pioniergeist, den Eric Shipton im Jahre 1930, der als Erster dieses Gebiet erforschte. Wir betreten den Hauptkamm des inneren Karakorum beim Übergang des Hispar Passes auf 5.151 m. Von Askole (3.090 m) folgen wir zunächst auf den ersten Etappen dem K2 Trek und zweigen von dort auf den Biafo Gletscher ab. Auf dem Weg über den gewaltigen Gletscher erleben wir atemberaubende Blicke auf den Orge (7.285 m), die Latok Peaks und andere jungfräuliche Gipfel, bevor wir Nagar erreichen und per Jeep ins Hunzatal fahren.
