hike to Rakaposhi Base Camp, Pakistan

One of our best hikes in Asia.

Here’s a fantastic vista you can reach by day hike. Free. And independently.

Rakaposhi is a mountain in the Karakoram range about 100 km (62 mi) north of the capital city Gilgit.

At 7,788 m (25,551 ft) it’s the 27th highest in the world.

There are views of Rakaposhi from the Karakoram Highway.

You need to get to Minapin and stay over one night before setting out early the next day.
