Description

Situated in the western reaches of the iconic Himalayan Mountains, Fairy Meadows is widely considered one of Pakistan’s most beautiful places. This lush high plateau, which sits in the north of the country, at the foot of the stunning Nanga Parbat peak, also makes for an incredible trekking destination.

Over the course of our six days together, we will head from the city of Islamabad into the mountains and hike through this gorgeous valley and up to the Nanga Parbat base camp. Along the way, we will enjoy stunning views of various snow-capped Himalayan peaks, thick evergreen forests and the luscious green valley. We may even get the chance to see some of the local wild horses too.

Starting from a village in the valley, we will walk several hours each day, steadily gaining altitude. At one point, we will have the option to summit one of the various peaks surrounding the valley – either Jillipur Peak (5,206m) or Buldar Peak (5,602m) – in order to get even more great views of the surroundings. After reaching the base camp, we will slowly hike back down out of the valley and on to another town. To finish off the trip, we will enjoy a local meal, listen to some music and dance in celebration.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure and spend 6 days trekking through the Fairy Meadows in northern Pakistan!
