Brief Description

The Katchkani pass is a very demanding short trek crossing a glacier and the high Katchkani pass 4766m between Swat’s Ushu Gol and Chitral’s Bashqar Gol. Upper Ushu Gol has lush pastures, forested hill sides and turquoise lakes and high rock wall that dwarf Yosemite’s Al Capitan while the Laspur side is in contrast harsh and barren with welcoming lush valley floors .This trek through forested glades and flowers-filled meadows along sparkling trout streams leads over the high intimidating pass into the lovely peaceful Chitral valley.
