Pakistan - The Old Silk Route
Mountains and Glaciers

Tour Overview

The redspokes cycle tour of Pakistan is an opportunity to experience astounding natural beauty and ancient cultures while enjoying some of the best riding in the world.

The Karakoram is the backbone of vast colliding mountain ranges incorporating some of the world's highest peaks and longest non-Polar glaciers. These peaks reach 7,000-8,000m and include K2, the second-highest mountain on Earth.

From Gilgit we cycle the Bagrote Valley at the heart of the Karakorum Mountains, and Dubani to the south east. We visit school and community projects supported by redspokes and our partner charity LVCF, receiving a warm village welcome. We journey onwards to Shimshall the highest settlement in the Hunza Valley, cycling back down the pass on thrilling mountain road. The Hunza has a reputation for outstanding natural beauty, welcoming communities and endless hiking and mountain biking opportunities. Until very recently Hunza was cut off from the modern world and became mythologized in books and films as the "Lost Kingdom of Shangri-La". Due to its isolation and purity its people are reputed to have extraordinary health and longevity.

You will revel in the striking beauty of Northern Pakistan's snow-capped Karakoram mountain range and glacial river valleys characterised by distinctive black rocks.

One of the world's great cycle rides, set amongst ever-changing scenery, our Pakistan cycle trip is hard to beat.
