Snow Lake and Hispar La Trek
Snow Lake is a high altitude glacial over 16km wide located at the head of the Biafo and Hispar glaciers. Snow Lake and Hispar La Trek starts from Skardu- Askoli, which lies on the right bank of Biafo Glacier. Biafo Glacier is 68 Kilometers on the Karakorum Range and south of Baltoro glacier leads to Hispar glacier.
This is a strenuous trek for strong trekkers where you get to cross peaks in the range of 5500m to 7300 meters. The famous snow lake is lying on 500 meters behind the Hispar La pass, this is the one of the best place for skiers and small peak climbers. After crossing Hispar La at an altitude of 5151 meters it gives a beautiful panoramic view of Mountains around Hispar glacier. We cross the summer pastures and we get into Hisper village, from there we meet the Jeeps to drive to Karimabad Valley.
