Few places on earth can match the grandeur of the epic scenery encountered on this unique itinerary. Travelling along sections of two of the world’s most scenic drives – the Pamir and Karakoram Highways - we’ll not only meet the varied ethnic groups who call this lofty world home, but we’ll also witness the incredible diversity of some of the planet’s most famous ranges including the Pamirs, the Karakorum’s and the Hindu Kush.
Crossing remote borders between Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Western China, and Pakistan, we’ll reach passes of 4800m and find ourselves in the stunning Hunza Valley (often referred to as Shangri La) with views of 7000m peaks all around. Following in the footsteps of ancient Silk Road traders we’ll experience the bustling Sunday market in Kashgar and be amongst the few visitors these days to experience northern Pakistan’s timeless beauty. This is very much a trip of a lifetime.
