Brief Description

Reminiscent to the Baltoro glacier trek, but much shorter, this trek delights fans of big mountains and mighty glaciers. It is a demanding trek where you are off and on the lower Tirich glacier trekking right into the very centre of the high Hindukush mountains to the base camp of Tirich Mir 7708m know as “Babu camp 4724m” named after our veteran guide Babu Mohammed. On route, there are impressive 7000m summits like Noshaq 7492m, Istor Nal 7403m besides others. Two excess routes are possible either through Torkhow valley or the Zani pass which is preferred for acclimatization before the high trek. The trip can be combined with other treks in the region.
