This accommodation feature rooms with astonishing views over the valley. During this time we will go for a scenic hike to the basecamp of Rakaposhi, in the Karakorum mountains. Rakaposhi is a 7.788 meters peak, and walking to the base camp is a relatively easy hike that can be done in one day but we will split in 2 stages, as we will do one overnight stay in a mountain campsite. The morning after, we will reach the base camp. Professional tour guide and gear, will be provided by a local tour operator. We´ll leave our belongings at the hotel in Hunza.

This is another scenic and thrilling 1.5 hours drive through the mountains. This drive is only allowed to be made by experienced local Jeep drivers. From the drop off point, it is required to walk (over 1,5 hours) to reach the picturesque Fairy Meadows. For the lazy ones😜, there are always local people offering to walk you or your belongings with help of donkeys. We will stay at the nicest accommodation available in the valley, Raikot sarai (mountain huts), with spectacular views over the Nanga Parbat mountain, right in front of you. The food served in the restaurant is one of the highlights! The day after we will make a hike to the base camp of Nanga Parbat. This hike is also doable for average hikers and it is not challenging (located at 3.500m altitude, +- 8 hours round walk). The views over the Himalayas, are absolutely worth! We´ll have the chance to stand at the bottom of one of the world eight-thousander! Nanga Parbat is the 9th tallest mountain in the world.
