Biafo & Hispar Glaciers have a total length of 126 km and are the longest of their kind outside of the Polar Regions. They meet at the 5,150 m high Hispar Pass. This immense highway of ice and rock connects the antique kingdoms of Nagar in the West and Askoli (little Tibet) in the East.

This route was extensively used to connect the Silk Route with the Indian Sub-Continent, China and Tibet. Mr. H.W. Tilman, an English trekker, claimed in 1937 that he had seen the footprints of Yeti on the glacier.

The same way served the people of Hunza to invade Askoli. Later it was used as a more progressive way between Hunza and Askoli and the people of Hunza came over to Askoli to play Polo with them.

This life-long trekking experience ends at the beautiful Hunza Valley, the Valley of Eternal Youth and home of the most progressive people compared with other parts of the Northern Areas. The people of Hunza are known for their longevity. In Karimabad we visit Altit and Baltit Fort and enjoy the unforgettable view from the roof-top of Baltit on Rakaposhi and Diran. Glaciologists after conducting tests on the Snow Lake confirmed that the thickness of snow is one mile. Here one can observe the rare species of animals in abundance like Snow Leopards, Himalayan Bears, Ibex, Markhore and some times the Marco Polo Sheep.
