Itinerary Code (NT-161). Shimshal Pass Trek in the Pamir region is among one of the most incredible Trek the region has to offer, located in the heart of Karakoram region in Shimshal. It’s one of the most remote valleys in the whole region as of today. Shimshal Pass is  also known as “Pamir pasture” by locals of Shimshal who use this Pass for grazing  herds of Yaks and other domestic animals only during  summers for six months. The Shepherds and local people are extremely welcoming and would feed you with dairy products and are more than happy to offer a rare glimpse of the living style of Shepherds.

Shimshal Pass Trek
offers a chance to summit Minglik Sar Peak ( 6,050 m) ,Kuz Sar Peak for aspiring Climbers and adventure seekers and breath taking views of Shimshal Pass lake which is located just below the Minglik Sar Peak. One of the major attractions of this trek is view of K-2 (8,611 m) and many peaks above seven thousand meters Peaks on a sunny day. This Trek also allows you to explore Shimshal Valley which was not connected to KKH until 2002.It took three days for people of Shimshal to reach from KKH on foot. Today this hidden place is connected to KKH through a strenuous road accessible only to 4×4  Jeeps , four hours’ drive from main KKH near Passu.Shimshal remains off the beaten track.

Nomadic Tours(Pakistan) Practices & Guidelines for Sustainable Tourism

Being a local based travel company located in the heart of karakorams in Hunza valley Pakistan, and as a part of the core values and mission of Nomadic Tours (Pakistan) we take responsible Tourism seriously.

Following are the two initiatives (5&13) under practice by Nomadic Tours (Pakistan) for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism put forth in SDGS by UN for responsible tourism.

Climate Action SDG#13
(We plant a Tree for every booking)  

Pakistan is among the worst hit by climate change globally with temperature soaring and glaciers melting. Mass tourism has been a challenge during summer vacations. We at Nomadic Tours (Pakistan) contribute in our little capacities. We ensure we leave behind minimum carbon foot prints and leave behind a cleaner and greener environment for upcoming generations.

From 2021 we will be planting a tree for every booking you make with us.The native trees include non- fruit bearing (Willow,Poplar,Oak and Russian Olive).Fruit bearing Trees include (Apricot,walnut,Peach and Cherry).

Gender Equality SDG#5
Inclusion of women in Tourism work force .
From year 2021, In an effort to bring about a gender equilibrium and encourage women to be an equal part of tourism  work force, here at Nomadic Tours(Pakistan) women work as mountain guides  and perform administrative duties.

There is an entirely dedicated Tour (women’s only tour in Pakistan) to start with. We ensure equal pays for all genders.
