Snow lake Ski tour

 

Karakoram Range. Start walk from Askoli and through flower-carpeted ablation valleys, we encounter             challenging as well as more straight forward trekking conditions. A highlight of the trip is the camp on the Hishpar La (5151m), where we can watch the afternoon shadow creeping across Snow Lake to the mighty Ogre (7285m), experience the adventure of ski in great Karakorams and turn to see the sun setting over the mountains of Hunza valley and the distant Hindukush to the west. Stunning scenery and a genuine sense of adventure in a high mountain wilderness are key attractions of this magnificent trek.
The descent of the Hishpar is mostly done off-glacier in the green, sometimes flower strewn ablation valley, though it is necessary on each of the 4 days of descent, to cross a side glacier with varying degrees of difficulty.
Again, crampons are not needed for these crossings but some scrambling may be required to cross the      lateral moraines.
You should only consider this trek if you have some previous trekking experience in the mountains, preferably at altitudes over 4000 meters (13,000 feet).
