Discover Pakistan Tours & Trekking is a licensed tourism company working under the license from Department of Tourist Services, Government of Pakistan. We believe in opening new horizons of exploration for adventure seekers. To pursue our goals each year we plan amazing trekking and mountaineering expeditions. For the year 2017, Discover Pakistan Tours & Trekking is once again coming up with another amazing trek to Snow Lake via new trekking pass in the heart of Karakorum. The trek begins from the breathtakingly beautiful Hoo Valley and crosses almost 5500m down to the massive Biafo Glacier.
Snow Lake, or Lukpe Lawo, is a high-altitude glacial basin in the Karakoram mountain range in Gilgit-Baltistan. Snow Lake is located 16,000 feet (4,877 m) above sea level, and is approximately 10 miles (16 km) wide. The basin lies at the head of the Biafo and Hispar glaciers, which spread down from the Hispar Pass in opposite directions, forming a 61 mile (100 km) river of ice that is among the world’s longest continuous glacier systems outside of the polar regions. Martin Conway, the first foreign visitor, gave Snow Lake the name in 1892. Conway described Snow Lake as “beyond all comparison the finest view of mountains it has ever been my lot to behold, nor do I believe the world can hold a finer. Snow Lake is very difficult to reach, however, and only about 200 people manage to reach it per year.
The Jamal Pass trek begins in the green and beautiful Hoh valley and crosses the 5300 meters high Jamal Pass down to the massive Biafo glacier. From Biafo glacier it´s possible to continue on the Biafo-Hispar Snow Lake Trek to Hunza
