Diran Base Camp Trek

Diran PeakThe Diran Base Camp Trek is a captivating journey through the majestic Karakoram Range. With altitudes ranging from 600m to 4000m, this 14-day trek takes you on an unforgettable adventure in an open zone, accessible from June to September. Starting from Bagrot Valley, located 15 km downstream from Gilgit, the lower reaches of this valley are desolate, but as you ascend towards Sinakkar, the landscape transforms into a cultivated and settled area. As you trek through the Bagrot Valley, you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the south faces of Rakaposhi (7788m) and Diran (7266m) peaks, along with the captivating twin summits of Bilchar Dobani (6134m). Additionally, the towering peaks of Phuparash (6785m), Malubiting (7458m), Laila (6986m), and Haramosh (7409m) will grace your journey through the Haramosh Valley, located to the east of Bagrot and branching north from the Indus River.

Despite their stunning beauty, these valleys are seldom on trekkers' itineraries, making them a hidden gem awaiting exploration. Accessible by road with mostly easy trails and spectacular vistas, the Diran Base Camp Trek offers a perfect balance of adventure and natural wonders. So, prepare yourself for an enchanting experience as you embark on this less-traveled path and immerse yourself in the splendor of the Karakoram Range.
