NALTAR-PAKORA TREK

The trek involves walking through flowery meadows, lakes and spectacular greenery.

The route also passes through a lush forest of cedar, pine, and birch. It, therefore, offers something more diverse in terms of landscape and has more than the usual share of scenic beauty without being too physically demanding. An excellent option for beginners as well as an experienced trekker.

 

It is recommended that trek may be started from Askole as group can reach up to Concordia being able to see major Baltoro Peaks and return the same route in case of extreme snow conditions and unkind weather situation. We recommend that the member should take high altitude clothing/bedding, rope, crampons, ice axes etc. We also suggest you that come for this trek after having couple of week walking or acclimatized yourself. Come and visit us we will show you the real adventure paradise on earth!!!
