It was likely built no earlier than the late 16th century following the Mughal emperor Akbar’s visit to Kashmir in 1589. At present it stands just inside the boundaries of Jammu and Kashmir in an area controlled by Pakistan. Excavations at the fort have uncovered the remains of a Hindu temple and relics from the 5th through the 9th centuries. However, the chronology of the fort’s construction and even its age remain open questions. Although maintenance of the fort is nominally in the hands of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Department very little has been done to preserve this historic site.

K2 stands 8611m from the base camp to climb K2 you must be able to move quickly at altitude must know ICE & ROCK climbing very well as being able to climb with a heavy rucksack at steep mixed terrain; one must be proficient at high alpinism.

k2_trek_guide

Journey starts from capital city ISLAMABAD and have to travel the bigger part of the 600 mile long Karakoram Highway, THE KKH. A very rough and risky  road being very narrow, the KKH is not a highway but really a jeep track. End of the KKH brings you to Skardu, which is an oasis of sorts. After the searing hot 49 Degree Celcius of Islamabad, Skardu is always cool at around 20 Degree Celcius .

From Skardu an off-road jeep track to the village of Askole. Track from Skardu to Askole is in very bad condition prone to landslide and rockfall mostly dangerous. Sometimes you have to change jeeps in the way to negotiate swollen rivers.

ASKOLE VILLAGE 

From Askole loads are distributed to the army of porters, who will carry to the base camp.Askole to K2 base camp is about hiking trek of 90KM with no roads, no walkways, nothing expect steep ice and rocks.

Harsh weather and massive avalanches from the flanks of the K2 are the biggest risks while trekking to K2.

Baltoro Glacier

is the longest glacier outside the polar region of about 63 Kilometers long and 2 Kilometer wide. Baltoro Glacier is very difficult to cross due to uneven trek and 90 KM per hour Wind speed. Baltoro Glacier is covered with glacier rubble that we call the moraine.Trekking in this terrain wears you out, moving up and down in this hilly glacier surface crossing rivers and camping on the glacier.

baltaro-glacier

After reaching the base camp the really hiking starts from and most of the adventurers not able to make due to the bad weather conditions. Statistically, the south east spur is the most often climbed route for K2.

Open letter to Pakistan from Young music Students of Gojal

Pakistani people love the culture and tradition of Gilgit Baltistan and as we know culture seems to be getting shriller by the day and even though the entertainment industry is not focusing on highlighting the versatility of our culture.Music brings joy and soul to the darkest corners of downtown and these young music students training locals to nearly extinct instrumental art.

We need to be promoted.

We will do our fair share of promo, but unless you want us to only bring our friends and family (half of which will want to be on the guest list and none of which will return without us), do a little work. Get us on your website calendar (with a picture, mini-bio, and link to our website). Put up our flyer in your cities.

We have fans, but the steady working musician can’t be expected to bring them to every gig. I’m sure there are fans of your venue. Bring them out! What’s more, if you can build a reputation for always having amazing musicians, people won’t even care who is playing. They will show up.

S.M.Bukhari’s Photography

Security and Peace

After the game changer CPEC now the security issue is addressed, we want more and more people to come out for their summer holidays, we want investors to build tour companies, Motels, Restaurants and Tourist Information Centers.We are voluntarily working to preserve the culture and tradition but we need a support from communities of Pakistan.

Treat us well and we will be your bards, your court jesters, and your geisha.
