Rashphari Peak (5058m) Climb
Level C: (16 days) Across the river Hunza from Karimabad lies the beautiful, unspoiled Nagar valley. Traditionally the bitterest of foes, Hunzukuzts and Nagaries have made peace in a manner typical of royalty; by marrying the princes of one to the king of the other. The highest of this adventure in Nagar valley is the summit of Rashphari peak, from where you have commanding views of Nagar and Karimabad. Rakaposhi (7788m) and Diran (7258) loom large on the horizon. The trek commences from the ex-king of Nagar's palace, across the Barphu glacier to Hamdar, and in two days, one makes the journey to a glacier lake at the base of Rashphari peak. The peak is not technically rugged but requires a lot of stamina as altitude gains are severe. After ascending Rashphary peak, descend to Phahi Phari at the edge of Braphu glacier, traverse the Barphu and return to Shishkin and Nagar.
For this trek, it is mandatory to have emergency evacuation insurance.
