After checking into our accommodation, we'll spend the day exploring Bazar, historical forts, gorgeous lakes, or old rock inscriptions, one of which is the 8th century Manthal Buddha Rock, which exhibits evidence of Buddhist monks and pilgrims who had influence in the area before to Islam. In the east of Pakistan’s northern Gilgit-Baltistan region at around 2,230 meters altitude lies Skardu.

We will begin our 7-hour jeep adventure to Askole village by first traveling the chilly desert to Shigar valley. However, it is dependent on the road conditions. The distance will take you between six and eight hours to complete. As of 2021, the road into the national park has been expanded, allowing us to begin the walk from Jhula camp rather than Askole, saving us a day of hot, dusty trekking on the road..

he advantages of spending an extra night here are very Helpful. It helps the acclimatization process and has proved to be more effective than a rest day at Paiju.

Leaving Urdukas behind, you follow the moraine edge eastwards until it is possible to climb up onto the broad back of the glacier. The trail on the Baltoro goes past the Yermanandu glacier, which flows from Masherbrum, and there are views of Muztagh (7,270m), Masherbrum (7,800m) and Gasherbrum IV at the head of the Baltoro and Concordia.

On this day of the Broad Peak Expedition, the participants will reach Concordia after continuously walking up the moraine, on the way more and more high snowcapped peaks will appear, the culmination for the sighting of K2 will be experienced on this day. Other peaks that can be seen include Broad Peak, Mitre Peak, Gasherbrum, Sia Kangri and many more

On this day we will continue walk towards Broad Peak Base Camp. On this day the trekking will be a bit tough as the moraine and terrain are very hard. We can go easy and rest at the base camp of Broad Peak.

Your climbing session of Broad Peak Expedition will start from today onwards. During the climbing period, our Guide, Chef and other staff will be staying at the base camp to help and assist you. Our professional Chef will make delicious and nutritious food which will play a great role in climbing a mountain.

After the climbing season of the Expedition, you will start descending on Baltoro Glacier by following the same itinerary backwards.

Continue your trek on the Baltoro Glacier with spectacular views of the Trango Towers towards Paiju. On our approach, we have to detour to the south in order to cross the Liligo Glacier

Now you are off the glacier and at a lower elevation it is considerably warmer and we may make an early start to use the cool of the morning. Leaving Paiju we walk on a good trail down the valley.

This will be our final trekking day of Broad Peak Expedition and our return to civilisation after two weeks in the wilderness. Soon we will follow a pleasant trail which leads down to the little ablation area beside the Biafo Glacier known as Korofon, surrounded by sparse grasses and tamarisk bushes.

Lifelong memories

We were part of a group of 17 who quickly formed a close bond created entirely by the enthusiasm and generosity of our leader. Nothing was too much trouble Long went out of his way every day to make sure we experienced in full life in Vietnam. The trip ran like clockwork, without us feeling we were being rushed at any stage. He made it fun even when we cycled 100 k in a day taking in a very high mountain pass.

Good 'ole Exodus!

An interesting blend of Vietnam from north to south including an o/n sleeper train. The success and enjoyment of these trips is usually down to the blend of fellow travellers and team leader and this one was no different. The weather,early season, was mixed with a little more rain and cloud than hoped for but did not detract from the enjoyment but a little more sunshine would have enhanced the countryside. A read of the brochure and trip notes will give a very accurate picture of the breadth and variety of the trip. The daily riding distances are mainly governed by the fitness of the participants and their ability to cover the miles in a reasonable time and for the first time in my experience of 7 trips we were delayed by some participants who frankly were not cycling fit and I wonder if they had read and understood the pre - trip advice!

Arman Askole
Fantastic Trip I am a little late in posting a review. We returned from this trip in early March, right when everything started to close down due to Covid-19. I can tell you that the memories of this trip have kept me going while sheltering in place. If you are thinking this might be the trip for you, please know that it is very fast paced with moving from place to place almost every night was quite challenging. The cycling itself was challenging based on ones fitness level. My husband completed every kilometer, while I did about three-quarters of the cycling. A lot of it depends on the heat, but for a female in my early 50s, I found it very doable. We had the most fabulous guide and crew. I cannot say enough of about our guide Son - he was absolutely amazing - taking care of all the details while we enjoyed ourselves. There are plenty of water/snack stops with fresh fruit and amazing snacks (ginger/nuts/cookies). They take very good care of you.
