Blank on the Map - Biafo Hispar Trek - Pakistan

Dates: 12th July - 2nd August 2015
Cost: £2500
The world's largest glaciated area outside the polar regions is located in Pakistan. At the heart of this glacial system is Lukpe Lawo, also known as “Snow Lake“, where four huge streams of ice, snow and rock converge, like a giant highway interchange. This trek leads over two of these arms, the glaciers of Biafo and Hispar. They are connected just north of Lukpe Lawo, via the Hispar pass (5150mts). The trek runs in total for 112 kilometer on ice, either debris covered, blank or snow covered. This is one of the wildest and most impressive treks anywhere in the world, in one of the globe's remotest corners.
