Gilgit Baltistan

Glimpses to Kanday Nangma Valley Trek

The Kanday Nangma Valley Trek is the go-to place for rock climbing enthusiasts in the Baltistan Region. This beautiful valley is the top choice for rock climbing in the Karakoram Baltistan. It offers various levels of climbing, from easy to challenging, suitable for climbers of all skill levels. Notable peaks in this area include the towering Amin Braq, reaching 5,850 meters, and the impressive 5,800-meter-high Incredible Towers.

To make this experience exceptional, we’ve carefully designed a program that focuses on conquering these peaks. We set up base camps in stunning green locations surrounded by towering granite rocks. Our approach is unique because it emphasizes visiting distinct destinations that allow climbers to fully enjoy the valley’s natural beauty. Kanday Nangma Valley is a prime example of the incredible beauty found in Hushe Valley, Baltistan. It’s undoubtedly one of the most beautiful trekking destinations in the region.

Next in the Way to Kanday Nangma Valley Trek

The Hushe Valley, known for its natural beauty and cultural richness, attracts travelers and trekkers. A 45-minute drive from Khaplu town northwards takes you to Machulo village, an unforgettable journey that lets you experience local culture in charming Machulo villages. The town features a grand mosque with the majestic Haldi cones in the background, adding to its charm.

Machulo town is a convenient base for accommodations and starting your journey to the Machulo La K2 viewpoint. It’s known for its accessibility, affordability, and stunning views. From this viewpoint, you can enjoy a magical and unobstructed view of K2 and all of Pakistan’s 8,000-meter peaks.

Traveling along the Hushe road, you’ll head towards Talis, Marzigond, and eventually reach Kanday, the gateway to the Kanday Nangma Valley Trek. On the opposite side of the Hushe River, you’ll find Balaygond and Khaney villages, offering trekking opportunities amidst impressive cliffs.

Kanday village has an interesting story, having faced a devastating flood that destroyed 90% of the original village. In response, residents relocated to higher ground, creating New Kanday. It’s from this new settlement that the Kanday Nangma Valley Trek begins.

These routes and destinations are truly remarkable and will leave a lasting impression on your travel experience.

Why Kanday Nangma Valley Trek is Famous?

Embarking on the Kanday Nangma Valley Trek is like starting a big adventure from charming Kanday town. It leads to the Nangma Valley, a hidden gem famous for its wild beauty and imposing rock towers. This valley is a rock climber’s paradise, surrounded by pristine meadows and clear springs.

Our plan focuses on giving you the best chances to explore, trek, and reach mountain peaks. We pick unique spots and set up base camps in green areas among tall rocks. This tradition started in 1909 when the Italian Expedition, led by the brave Amadeo Guiseepie, began their journey. The Kanday Nangma Valley Trek lets you see these wonders up close.

Amin Braq, a massive rock formation, is one of the most challenging walls on our planet, even harder than the Anonymous Pinnacle. In 1996, Jon Lazkano, a fearless Basque climber, attempted to conquer it. In 1997, Lazkano, along with Adolfo Madinabeitia and Jose Carlos Tamayo, made a daring capsule-style expedition on this formidable rock face.

Get ready for an adventure with no limits, offering you a taste of the extraordinary and the excitement of conquering nature’s grandeur.

How it Named?

In the world of mountain climbing, Akhon Ibrahim’s name is closely linked to the discovery of Amin Braq in 1995. Mr. Akhon Ibrahim, a well-known and experienced mountain tour guide, played a key role in this important expedition. The successful climb of Amin Braq in 1995 demonstrates the professionalism and dedication that defined their work. It was Mr. Jon Lazkano, who had a strong connection with Akhon Ibrahim, who gave the name “Amin Braq” in honor of Ibrahim’s son, Amin.

Following this remarkable achievement, Spanish teams made their own attempts, but it wasn’t until 1999 that Enthusiasm Masip, Miguel Puigdomenech, and Silvia Vidal made history by conquering this pristine tower. Their challenging route, called “Sol Solet” (1650 meters), required a grueling 34-day journey and is considered one of the most technically complex climbs in the world.

During the same season, a Korean team made a notable effort to climb the west face, completing 27 pitches before turning back, just 100 meters from the summit due to heavy snowfall and strong winds. Less than a month later, a Czech team consisting of Filip Silhan, Marek Holecek, and David Stastny etched their place in history by reaching the summit and naming their route “Czech Express” (5.12c A3, 70 degrees).

The west face, characterized by a series of ridges, may not be extremely steep, but it poses a formidable challenge for the most adventurous climbers. The story of Amin Braq and its conquest showcases the unyielding spirit of exploration and the relentless pursuit of excellence in mountaineering.
