Along Wakhan Corridor

The Boroghil region along the Wakhan Corridor is an area yet to be explored. There exist secluded virgin valleys and grazing lands touching Afghanistan and the Central Asian states through this famous strip.
The trek connects Yarkhun valley in Chitral to the Chapursan valley in Gojal(Hunza) and can be done both ways.During the times of The Great Game, this corridor was created as a buffer between the British empire in the sub continent and the Russians
This is one of the most amazing treks in Pakistan’s North because it offers everything that a trekker encounters during different trekking expeditions i.e. lush green meadows, high passes, glaciers, rivers, and some of the most beautiful lakes including the magnificent Karomber.
