Biafo, Hisper, Snow Lake trek

Trekking into the unknown

We know the risks involved in trekking to the Biafo, Hisper and Snow Lake like the back of our hands, and we are always alert to save our team from straying on a patch of ice or plunging into a deep crevasse. 

Located in the Karakorum mountain range, the Biafo (63 kilometers long) and Hisper (49 kilometers long) are among the most dangerous glaciers in the world. And the trekking route cuts through twelve 7,000 meters peaks. The romance between the two glaciers takes place at the Hisper La pass where they meet and mingle. The pass is 5151 meters above sea level.

Combined, the two glaciers boast a length of 126 kilometers, the longest outside the Polar Regions. The trekking route starts in Baltistan’s Askoli region and ends in the Hunza Valley. The enormous highway of ice and stones links Nagar Valley in west and Askoli (also known as little Tibet) in the east.
