This is truly one of the finest treks offered within Hindukush Range in Pakistan, exploring an area visited by very few tourists as it has recently been opened for foreigners. We trek through the beautiful and scenic mountain villages in Chitral valley under the shadow of Tirichmir peak rising to 7708 meters, the highest peak in the Hindukush range. Alexander the great passed through this mountain range in 326 B.C leaving behind Greek traditions and customs, which to this day are reflected in the indigenous tribes residing in isolated Kalash valleys. After driving through the fabulous Hindukush and Hindu Raj mountains we reach the Yarkhun valley from where the exciting trek begins.

The locals call this the roof of the world as it serves the beautiful landscape, large herds of Yaks, goats and sheep can be seen grazing across the fertile and sweet grassy meadows of this high plateau. From here we trek down to the Ishkoman valley or ascend to the path leading to Chilinji Pass at 5290 meters and enter Chupurson valley in upper Hunza.
