At the head of the Biafo Glacier and at the foot of the Hispar Pass is the remarkable white wilderness know as ‘Snow Lake’ This spectacular beauty of this natural wonder is enhanced by the presence of the Ogre or Biantha Brakk, the highest peak in the Region. Such is the stunning beauty of this region combined with its wealth of magnificent snow clad peak, that it is hard to identify any one peak as being.

  1. Jack

    Just a short message to say many thanks from us for our trek to Biafo Hispar Snow Lake Trek.

    The Biafo Lake Trek by Tour De Rakaposhi was very well organised and everything ran smoothly. Ishaq was a great guide, thoroughly professional, and Issa was a great porter and very encouraging. They both helped and supported us and each carried my rucksack when I was struggling. They are a credit to your company and we hope that they do well in their careers.

    We have again been impressed by Tour De Rakaposhi’s services and it was obvious on the trek that the company is well respected. We felt lucky to be with yourselves rather than in one of the large groups on the trek.

    Once again, many thanks.
