Why you should visit Gilgit- Baltistan, Northern Pakistan

𝕋𝕣𝕒𝕧𝕖𝕝𝕠𝕘 7: The most interesting day In our life when snow was everywhere and we were in the middle of no where. Just 6 people deserted in Beyal Camp and snowfield.

We rested and stayed the night in the wooden hut and woke up at 7am in the morning. Packed, had breakfast and got ready to go to Nanga Parbat view point or at least try to go near.

At that moment it was decided and finalised that we can not go to Basecamp in this snow.

So started our hike towards the view point. The 2nd group, supposedly was joining us at 11:00pm but I guess they became slow and missed the timeline due to snowy weather and slippery tracks.

We walked almost half a km inside the snow and towards the Nanga Parbat. Still wrapped up in clouds and fog.

At one point, we reached to this conclusion and closure that we can’t go any further as it was impossible to walk on 3 feet snow, without any path or trail.

We turned back and walked towards the hut. Grabbed our luggage lying there and started to descend back to fairy meadow as we had to reach back to our hotel in the same day.

Found the other group on our way and was really excited to be resembled with them after 14 hours of “Judai”.

Came back to the Beyal again with them,rested as they walked all the way from meadow and needed their strengths back. Had chai and chips.

Then we all came back to Fairy Meadow with this incredible trek of our life. It will always be carved in our memories; forever.
