This is the best, most dramatic mountain scenery you can get. It’s just spectacular. This trek passes along the north western end of the Himalayan chain, along two glaciers and through valleys of granite rubble, then up to 16,900 foot pass, Hispar La. This is the longest continual glacier trek you can do, 120 kilometres walking on or beside a glacier. The journey takes 26 days and it’s a self contained expedition so you need to be able to carry everything you need in and out and you need to be fit to do it.
