Karakoram Skiing Expedition Tour Pakistan

Skiing Tour in the high mountains of Pakistan

Skiing is as thrilling as mountaineering especially in the Karakoram Mountain Region of Pakistan. With its longest glacier system surrounded by gigantic mountains, ski in the Karakorams would be a heartwarming experience. Among numerous spots for cross country ski, an expedition starting at Braldu Glacier in Shimshal Valley crossing Lupka La (5544 M) entering Snow Lake in Biafo Glacier and finally reaching Askoli has become a popular destination. Alternatively the trip can take place at Khani Basa of Biafo Glacier then crossing Hispar Pass (5050 M) to enter into Snow Lake finally reaching Askoli. Yet another fascinating option starts at  Panmah Glacier, skiing around Nobande Sobande Glacier entering into Simgang Glacier via Sim La (5850 M) leading towards Snow Lake finally terminating at Askoli again. Skiers can take advantage of climbing a peak up 6500 meters of altitude without paying any additional permit fee. The recommended season to start a ski trip is the last week of April or the first week of May.
