I self discover myself through wandering, It is not always as easy as it seems to be.. The scar on my leg speaks about the dangers and pain involved in this sport, yet it is fulfilling.. Wandering is essential to realizing what it means to be human!! how hard life could be out of your comfort zones. The thrill of adventure is matchless.. Its tough when you are out of your hometown seeking nutrition of your soul.. As they say “Whenever you feel a little stricken down in pain, think about this. The knife has to be sharpened by striking and rubbing it against something strong before it can become useful! You are going to be great after the struggles.”
I have been travelling north since past 7 years. In pursuit of enrichment of my soul i have been to one of the most amazing places hosted by motherland. From scariest Jeep rides to one of the most scenic meadows. From terrifying glaciers to the Throne of Mountain Gods The Mighty Baltoro. From abandoned valleys to the joyful streets of Hunza and Gilgit. From hectic and nerve shaking treks to the most amazing lakes encompassing the beauty of my country.
Every year hundreds of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are being hosted by The Explorers to find out going to the mountains is going home, that wilderness is a necessity.. We support those people by arranging for them adventure trips, outdoor activities and a chance to spend sometime in wilderness. I have managed to have traveled with one of the most amazing, fulfilled and enthusiastic groups in Pakistan. I feel honored to Lead people to the places they have only dream of going.
Travelling teaches you many things, few of those are steadfastness, humbleness and determination. Sometimes you ran of resources and you have to survive the worst in no-land. You are interacting with different cultures most of the times and Pakistan is a culture enriched country. Even in North, we find beautiful people from multiple different cultures living together in harmony. Adversities aside, travelling is fun. It helps you explore yourself. You get a chance to visit the master pieces of mother nature. Ever experienced sitting on a couch looking outside through your camp, having snow covered mountains and pine trees in sight 😉 naaa.. Come travel with me, and i will let you experience the best of Pakistan
My most favorite place that i have visited up til now is Broghil Valley at the junction of Afghanistan Border. The valley is also called Along Wakhan Corridor.
The Broghil 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.
Hope to see you all on my upcoming adventure towards north 🙂 https://web.facebook.com/events/553267918200312/ | A Winter trip like no other 🙂
