Trek Along Wakhan(6)

Terk Along Wakhan Corridor (The Afghan Fragrance)

Brughil region along the Wakhan Corridor is an area yet to be explored. There exist secluded virgin valleys and grazing lands touching Afghanistan and Central Asian States through this famous strip. On the trek, we cross three passes starting with an easy stroll through the valleys and pastures. The scenery is captivating and out of the world. The Chillinji Pass joins the region with upper Hunza Valley in Chipurson. We cross the famous shrine called Baba Ghundi Ziarat to arrive on Karakoram High (KKH) and drive to Karimabad, the capital of former Hunza State.
