Chaltumak village to Base camp and back , then Tashkorgan
Most people don’t get the chance to see a glacier, let along walk on one, but today you’ll be one of the lucky few. After breakfast with a local family, we’ll hike up to the nearby glacier to experience first hand the magnificent beauty of the father of the ice mountains, Muztagh Ata, followed by a trek up to base camp at 4500m, where all adventurers begin their climbing ascent. If your health is good enough for climbing you may also try to climb part of it, perhaps up to 5000m. Although today is the most difficult part of our trek together, it’s also the most beautiful, too. Finally, we’ll trek back down to marker 204 on the nearby Karakorum Highway, where our driver is waiting for us to drive to Tashkorgan, about two hours further on. Settled in your hotel, you’ll feel comfortable again after a welcome shower to wash away the dirt of three days trekking. Hiking through the mountains in not for the faint hearted, but one that leaves an undisputable memory that will stay with you forever.
