Overview

Hushe Gondogoro Valley

At the head of the Hushe valley is Masherbrum (7821m) and five large glaciers; Aling, Masherbrum,  Hushe Gondogoro Valley, Chogolisa and Tsarak Tsa. The popular Hushe valley offers a variety of short, easy treks, a number of not too technical mountaineering peaks, some intresting rock climbs and an exciting route to Baltoro Glaicer.

The village of Hushe Gondogoro Valley is the last village where jeep road ends. It is 140km east of Skardu and the starting point for expeditions and trekking to various summer pastures and five glaciers.
Following the Charakusa River and passing through Shepherd’s summer camp and the junction of the Gondogoro and Charakusa Rivers, we will cross a wooden bridge to reach Saicho, which is a large shepherd’s settlement with a Mosque. The next day we will trek to Dalzampa, which means “field of flowers”. It is a beautiful campsite at about 4150m, which lies between two lakes with Masherbrum Mountain and the white glacier cascading down from Masherbrum Pass reflecting in the still water.
