20 Days 19 Nights, Shimshal Pass Trek 2023-2024
Shimshal Pass Trek is perhaps the most astonishing undertaking in Pakistan.
Arranged in perhaps the most distant valleys of northern Pakistan is Shimshal pass.
Shimshal pass is around 3-4 days from Shimshal town.
Situated at a rise of 4700m, Shimshal valley is about 800 KM away from
Islamabad by means of the Karakoram Highway (KKH). Shimshal pass is
otherwise called Pamir pastures by the neighborhood populace
who utilize this pass for a half year for touching their
group of sheep, yaks, and other homegrown creatures.
