This is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque locations in Northern Pakistan. It requires a high level of physical fitness as you'll be hiking along mountainous routes to get to your desired destination. For an average person, it takes about 5 hours to get to the Base Camp from Fairy Meadows. But once you're there, it is worth all the... More

But it is now utterly spoilt by the total lack of respect shown by a vast majority of visitors. Rubbish strewn around, lime green plastic bottles just thrown by the track and around the camp site along with anything else that people can't be bothered to take with them. It is now overwhelmed with very large and noisy groups who... More

This place can only be described as breath taking. Unbelievable beauty and the shear size of these mountains is glorious.

One of the most accessible 8000m peaks in the world, with stunning beauty. A hairy jeep drive up to fairy meadow, great day treks to Base camp and around.
