Brief Description

This classic traverse from Chitral to Chapursan valley and Hunza along the Wakhan corridor is a delightful trek crossing three passes Shah Junali pass 4215m the Kurambar pass 4300m and Chilinji pass 5200m. We pioneered this trek when no tourists were allowed in the region. Following early explorers Tilman and Thiesegar it offers the best of mountain scenery. The scenery changes dramatically from deep valleys, thundering rivers and soaring glaciated peaks of the Shah Junali before you emerges on the southern tip of the Pamirs at Brroghil and Kurambar. In Boroghil the boundless plains, lakes and mountains of the Pamirs of central Asia are literally a stone throw away, and a detour to the crest of Boroghil pass revels a valley that falls away into the fabled Oxus. Here you get to see Wakhi tribe, rosy-cheeked Tajiks and Kirghiz leading yaks and camels on trade routes. You then continue east into the northern extremities of the Karakorum in Hunza with peaks rising on both sides of you, glacier crossing & with the high Chilinji pass this trek offers a variety of mountain scenery on route.
