Shimshal Pass Trek

Roof of the World!

Trekking round the famous Shimshal Pass is akin to venturing into a hypnotic world that has the best experiences to offer you.

Rising at 4735 meters above sea level in Upper Hunza, the Shimshal Pass is located on the crunch between the Indus River and Tarim River basins. The pass takes you to the Shimshal Braldu River valley on the edge of the lesser-known and traveled Pakistan-China border.

The venture is an ultimate challenge for the passionate trekkers. Nature comes into full play as you trek through Minglik Sar and Shipodeen pass. The scurfy route, rugged mountains, snow capped peaks, lush green valleys and pastures make the trek even more enthusing and interesting. You will naturally experience a boost in your feelings as the natural aura changes and captivates you every few minutes.

The natural environment, local hospitality, grasslands, the beautiful mountain landscapes, wildlife like Marcopolo Sheep, Himalayan Ibex, and blue sheep, and organic lifestyle make this trek completely splendid. It is worth mentioning here that the Colonel Francis Young Husband crossed the Shimshal Pass to reach Shimshal from China sometimes during the famous Great Game, and it was at this place that he stumbled upon his Russian counterpart Captain Grombtchevski.
