From the summit there is an incredible 360-degree mountain panorama with the view of all high peaks of Hunza, from Ultar (7,388m) standing above Karimabad to Diran (7,266m) and Rakaposhi (7,788m) towering above the Karakoram Highway.

This is a fabulous trekking journey that shows you the best of the Karakoram, in the shortest time span and with least effort. The climb is certainly not for the novice but if you have trekked at high altitude previously and have good lungs and plenty of willpower then you won't be disappointed. On this trek through the foothills of Karakoram, you have the opportunity to experience the majesty of this massive peak without risking life and limb to climb it! Start in Islamabad capital city of Pakistan, where you can explore the cultural sites and monuments. From there, drive to the charming town of Hunza and start your trek. The stunning views of Rakoposhi, Ultar, Spantik and other peaks. Whilst we acclimatize we take the opportunity to explore Hunza and Bar valleys and the surrounding areas. After a visit to Altit and Baltit fort, we begin our trek and slowly make our way along the Barpu Glacier and prepare for the final push. Our return to Karimabad is via another route down the Barpu Glacier to Nagar and Karimabad where you will have time to do some shopping and sightseeing.
