 »Shimshal - Gujrab - Kuksel Trek Shimshal »

The 60 km trek from PASSU to Shimshal village follows the polished sandstone of the Shimshal River gorge due east from the Hunza River. Shimshal is the oldest of the Wakhi-speaking villages in Gojal. Established over 400 years ago, the 1200 residents maintain customs no longer practised in other villages. Their large herds of yaks, sheep, and goats roam the high rolling summer grasslands of the Pamir, on the divide between South Asia and Central Asia. They also have large herds in Ghujerab and Lupgar. In the centuries prior to 1947, when the Hunza Mir's ruled Gojal, the Mir occasionally punished Hunza men to remote Shimshal. The notorious Hunzaraids on the Leh- Yarkand carvan route were conducted from the Shimshal Pamir. himshal was closed to outsiders until 1986. Since then, only handfuls of foreigners have made the trek each year. Shimshal high pastures (KNP). The KNP has been a bone of contention between Shimshal and the government since its establishment in 1975. Some Shimshalis view it as an opportunities for economic development; others view it as a vehicle through which the government could seize control of the Pamir and so threaten Shimshallis survival. The government has agreed to leave the Shimshal area out of the KNP management jurisdiction until the Shimshalis agree to accept the park. You can make short side treks to the pastures along the Lupgar or Momhil glaciers. Beyond Shimshal Village, you can trek to pastures areas along the Yazghil, Khurdopin and Virjerab glaciers. The heavily crevassed East Khurdopin Glacier leads to the difficult Khurdopin Pass and snow lake. You need a guide to show you the way across the Yazghil Glacier and beyond Shimshal Village is the starting point for longer treks to the Pamir and Ghujerab.
