Overview

Naltar Pass Trek 4600m: This trek is designed you to provide a great view of the whole Hindukush range and its mountains by trekking up to Naltar- Ishkoman pass which is a lush green pass. Naltar is very famous in terms of its greenery and skiing opportunity in winter. Each winter there arranges a competition of skiing

Hidden in the mountains a dramatic, barren gorge 19 km long is the surprisingly green and lush valley of Naltar. Some climatic quirk gives Naltar Ishkoman Trek, about 410mm of rainfall per year, more than three times that of Gilgit and the valley is heavily wooded with pine, spruce, birch, rowan, and juniper.

Asumbar: Asumbar Hoghost, a non-glaciated east-west pass, links Asumbar village in Ishkoman with Dal Sandhi in Yasin. The pass is occasionally called the Ishkoman Pass (not to be confused with the Punji Pass, which is also sometimes called Ishkoman Pass). Asumbar Haghost is one of the easiest passes to cross anywhere in the Karakoram and Hindukush. The trek is also one of the most linguistically diverse. Along the trail, Shina, Khowar, Wakhi, and Burushaski are spoken, not to mention Urdu.

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 of beginners as well as an experienced trekker.

Apart from soothing landscapes, Hindukush ranges of mountains offer the best opportunity to trek across many untamed passes from one valley to another, where we follow some of the ancient paths left by locals before the invention of modern means of transportation and are still used by shepherds of Ghizer valleys. The Punji pass trek is one of the ancient routes barely known to tourists and less traveled area, connecting Ishkoman village to Darkot village – Yasin, Ghizer region, Gilgit –Baltistan Pakistan. The pass is named after a distinctive cairn (Punji in Burushaski) 2.25 km west of, and 350 m. below, the pass, marking the highest possible campsite on the west side of the pass. The pass is also called Ishkoman Haghost by Darkot villagers.
