Zakh Winter Adventure Sports Shigar Valley Gilgit Baltistan
“Zukh” is a native word used for Local Boat. As per history, more than 50 years ago, Zakh was used as a mean of transport, to travel and trade from one place to other in the region of Baltistan Pakistan. In some areas of Baltistan, these traditional boats (Zakh) are still in use to cross the rivers where there is no bridge or other means to cross.
Zakh (Rafting) Route:
Shigar River - Indus River
Shigar River is formed from the melted water of Spantik Arando Glacier, Baltoro Glacier and Biafo Glacier. The junction where these glaciers’s water meet is “Molto” from where they appears to be a single river, The Shigar River. Skardu City is the junction where Shigar River, Ghanche River meet with River Indus. The Starting Point of the Winter adventure Sports is Gulabpur Shigar and the ending point is Sundus Skardu. It’s a proud moment to successfully organize the first Zakh Winter Adventure Sport in November 2021
