Trango Towers K 2 Concordia Kalash Heli Safari | Trango Towers Air Safari
A Safari specially designed for those who are hard pressed for time. The trip starts from Islamabad and after an ascending flight through the picturesque valley of Kaghan, a coffee stop at Shogran. From Fairy Meadows the helicopter flies to Deosai, skirting Nanga Parbat along the Astor valley. The flight over Deosai, a treeless wilderness at 13,000 feet whose air is impregnated with the scent of wild flowers, is a superb experience. You will be seeing Sheosar and Satpara Lakes and if lucky enough the Brown Beers. The flight shall terminate at Shangrila Skardu. On the second day you will be flown to Concordia, over flying the panoramic Shigar Valley and the spectacular Braldu Gorge. At Paiju, the mouth of Baltoro Glacier, you will be able to see the finest rock pinnacle in the world - The Great Trango Towers.
Heli Safaris to the roof of the World – A great opportunity for those who have limited time but still like to have a bird’s eye view of Pakistan’s Northern paradise. All these safaris begin from Islamabad. We use Mi-17 (24 passengers) and ALT-III (5 passengers) helicopters for these heli-safaris.
Fairy Meadows – The last mountain wilderness of the Himalayas, lying under the shadow of Nanga Parbat (8,126 m), waiting for you to explore by helicopter.
Trango Towers – It is a freestanding shaft culminating in the Trango Group, located on the left of Baltoro Glacier. It is the highest granite tower and considered to be the finest rock pinnacle in the world.
Concordia–This chaotic jumble of ice and rocks looks like an amphitheater rimmed by ice streams descending from four highest mountains of the Karakorams (K-2, Gasherbrum-I, Gasherbrum-II and Gasherbrum-IV). The point rests on the junction of two great glaciers – Baltoro and Godwin Austin.
K2 – “It was one of those sights which impress a man for ever, and produce a permanent effect upon the mind” (Francis Youghusband (1896) – First view of K-2).
Kalash Tribes & Chitral Valley – Chitral, an area which was focus of the “Great Games”, at the turn of the 19th Century, is a land of ancient forts, rivers, springs and unique culture.
