Biafo Glacier and Hispar glacier with total length of 126 km and longest out side the Polar Regions. They meet at the 5,150 meters high Hispar pass. This immense high way of ice and stones connects- the antique kingdoms of Nagar in west and Askoli (little Tibet) in east.

This route was extensively used to connect silk route with Indian sub continent, China and Tibet. Mr. H.W Tilman an English trekker claimed in 1937 that he had seen the foot prints of yeti on the glacier. The same way used to serve for people of Hunza to invade Askoli, which latter served as a more progressive way between Hunza and Askoli as the people of Hunza come over to Askoli to play POLO with the people of Askoli.

This life-long experience ends at the beautiful Hunza Valley; the Valley of Eternal Youth & home of the most progressive people as compared to other parts of Northern Areas. In Karimabad, we visit Altit and Baltit Forts and enjoy the view from the roof-top of the Baltit fort which is an unforgettable experience. The people of Hunza are known for their longevity in the world. Glaciologists after conducting tests on the snow lake confirmed that the thickness of snow is one mile deep. Here one can observe the rare species of animals in abundance like snow leopards, Himalayan bears, Ibex, Markhore and some times the Marco polo Sheep.
