Ovir & Tirichmir BC

The first part of the trip is to Ovir Pass; this famous and easily accessible trek crosses a ridge-top pass along the southern flanks of mighty Tirich Mir, visiting friendly villages along the way. Traveling the Ovir Ann (4,338m) is a short and popular trek that offers lovely close-up views of the southern flanks of Tirich Mir massif. Afterward, we trek to Tirich Mir, the Hindu Kush’s highest peak, which rises above a vast wilderness of glaciers and 20 other impressive 7,000 m summits, making this a trek into the very center of the tall Hindu Kush. Tirich Valley, a long, western branch of the Turikho Valley, leads towards the base of the highest Hindu Kush peaks; Noshaq, Istor-o-Nal, and Tirich Mir. The famous trek to Tirich Mir Base Camp traverses the lower Tirich Glacier. The tour combines a cultural exploration of Kailash Valley (Kafiristan). If time is not a problem, extending the trip to Hunza Valley will make the journey awesome. You may also connect this trek with several other hikes in the Hindu Kush.
Along the way, trekkers will pass through remote villages, cross fast-flowing streams, and experience the local culture and hospitality of the people who live in these remote mountain communities. The trek is known for its rugged beauty and provides an opportunity to experience the raw, unspoiled beauty of the Hindu Kush range.

WHO SHOULD DO THE TREK?

Trekking in Hindukush is easy and comfortable even for beginners. Most of the camping sites in Hindukush are grassy with clear spring water to drink and wash. These are the best option for people who like to experience the local communities along the trek. There are no high mountains like the Karakorum and the Himalayas. The highest mountain here is Terich Mir 7,879 m (the highest peak in Hindukush). However, there are numerous tiny and beautiful peaks and breathtaking landscapes to enjoy nature. This is the trek; only some people do it, unlike any other trek in Pakistan. There is a lot to explore in the Hindukush Range of Pakistan. We can plan a day hike to a month-long trek within the region. 

The most exciting highlights in Hindukush are blue sky lakes, waterfalls, rivers, lush green meadows, and summer pastures where the local communities go with herds of animals during the summer. It provides an excellent opportunity to experience the local cultures and traditions while traveling in Hindukush.
