This is a superb mountaineering journey, which crosses one of the most rugged tracts of terrain on the face of the Earth. Long and sustained, it includes a number of tough days and 2 high and committing pass crossings. There are only 3 rest days within this 26-day trek and that means you will need to be in excellent physical condition to take it on. However, our trekking pace in Pakistan is dictated to a great extent by the distances that the porters are prepared to walk and this is usually around 6 hours’ walking per day. This equates with an average of just 7 or 8 miles per day, as walking speed is restricted by the altitude and by the sometimes difficult terrain. The crossing of the Gondoro La is a true mountaineering challenge involving the ascent of steep (45 degree) snow slopes on the Hushe side and the descent of a large glaciated mountain face on the Concordia side. It will also be necessary to rope up to descend the snow-covered West Vigne Glacier. This day will require a midnight start and could be as long as 10 or 12 hours. No technical climbing ability is required as steep sections of the pass will be safeguarded with fixed ropes and full training in their use, as well as in the various techniques required for roped glacier travel, is given prior to the crossing. The crossing of Snow Lake and the Hispar La involves less steep ground, but it is crevassed and once again the group will be roped up possibly for as many as 3 consecutive days.
