  • Conquer the Pakistani mountainside as you peddle through sublime scenery.

  • Take in the incredible natural landscapes that Pakistan has to offer.

  • Benefit from having a mountain guide accompanying you along the ride.


Peddle through the ancient paths of the Old Silk Road that once connected the Eastern civilisations with the West, the main artery for the spreading of trade and culture.

Absorb the centuries-old cultures that are dotted along the Karakoram Highway as we bike around 560 kilometres in 15 days.

You’ll enjoy some of the most spectacular mountain biking in the world as we tour Pakistan. The highway is named after the Karakoram mountain range which is cuts through.

The route takes us on dirt paths and paved roads that pierce through colossal mountains that soar between 7,000 and 8,000 meters, and along the banks of the Indus, Pakistan’s longest river.

Each day we will bike approximately 56 kilometres, taking us past the breathtaking valleys of Hushe and Thalley, both packed with high and mighty mountain peaks.

Then we’ll cycle besides the Shyok River just before it conjoins with the great Indus, with its origins running from the Tibetan Plateau.

The peddles then begin to be tested as we ascend around 4,200 meters to the Deosai Plateau, which is decorated with pristine beauty protected within a national park.

Continuing northwards we will enter into the Hunza Valley, home to ancient forts that are UNESCO World Heritage sites, and then the Nagar Valley, coloured with almond trees, apricot trees and blankets of ice covering the Rakaposhi mountain.
