Shimshal Pass Trek

The epitome of remote inhabited areas in the Karakorams

The domain of the Largest Glaciated region on Earth, with the greatest geological upheavals steeped in the Myths of Spiritualism seems no way of this world. Named after the famous Muslim Saint, Shah Shamse of Tabrez, who migrated through this valley from to Multan, was declared as the Epitome of remote inhabitance by the local Rulers and remained a maroon for the local outlaws for over centuries. Located not far from the Chinese border on the northern edge of the range, the inhabitants of this mystic valley still retain many of their traditional customs which are fast disappearing elsewhere in the region. Being the remotest and the most isolated regions, the criminals sentenced to rigorous punishment by the Mirs of the state used to be MAROONED in Shimshal – only the fittest survived. The descendants however are unbelievably friendly, honest and hospitable. Their disciplined life and cultured civilization bewitch and enthral the visitors (fewer) from the outer world. Geologically, Shimshal reveals, great upheavals in its natural history. With a collection of towering snow capped peaks, massive lakostrine deposits, gigantic scree eroding mountains, elevated greens meadows, fertile alluvial farms and stark rigid gorges; Shimshal domains the largest glaciated region on Earth outside the polar regions. The walk to Shamshal, is not a task to be undertaken lightly. It is a hard trek up and down the gorges, across rushing icy torrents, along steep narrow trails, through broken rocks, over wire-rope bridges and through crevasses glaciers. The incentive for this strenuous walk is undoubtedly equally rewarding.
