Heli Safaris to the roof of the World – A great opportunity for
those who have limited time but still like to have a bird’s eye view of
Pakistan’s Northern paradise. All these safaris begin from Islamabad. We
use Mi-17 (24 passengers) and ALT-III (5 passengers) helicopters for these
Fairy Meadows – The last mountain wilderness of the Himalayas,
lying under the shadow of Nanga Parbat (8,126 m), waiting for you to
explore by helicopter.
Trango Towers – It is a freestanding shaft culminating in the
Trango Group, located on the left of Baltoro Glacier. It is the highest
granite tower and considered to be the finest rock pinnacle in the world.
Concordia –This chaotic jumble of ice and rocks looks like an
amphitheater rimmed by ice streams descending from four highest mountains
of the Karakorams (K-2, Gasherbrum-I, Gasherbrum-II and Gasherbrum-IV).
The point rests on the junction of two great glaciers – Baltoro and Godwin
Austin. Being at Concordia means to be face to face with K-2 (8,611 m), a
real soul stirring experience.
K-2 – “It was one of those sights which impress a man for ever, and
produce a permanent effect upon the mind” (Francis Youghusband (1896) –
First view of K-2). “The sight was beyond my comprehension and I sat
gazing at it with a kind of timid fascination” (Eric Shipton).
Kalash Tribes & Chitral Valley – Chitral, an area which was focus
of the “Great Games”, at the turn of the 19th Century, is a land of
ancient forts, rivers, springs and unique culture. The valleys of Brir,
Rambur and Bamburet are the home of the only pagan tribe – Kalash, ‘the
wearers of black robes’.
