Karakoram Highway - The Old Silk Route

15 Days Moderate-Advanced 1050 Km

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 the planet.

We cycle through spectacular scenery starting near Rawalpindi, following the River Indus (which separates the Himalayas and Hindu Kush ranges) to Gilgit. Here we feel that the "real" mountain cycling begin as the road climbs towards the Khunjerab pass at 4,730m.

En route we cycle through the Hunza valley which 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.
