Schooliye summer trip – 2019

We have been busy, we kept making plans and coming up with new timelines every time.
Finally, time has come to pack our bags and start the journey to one of the most unforgettable trips of our lives. Now that we have booked our tickets, we keep coming with a new itinerary everyday.
No matter what our final itinerary would be, its going to be a memorable trip for all of us.
Here is one of the proposed itinerary, I drafted it today and shared on our WhatsApp group:

Tentative Itinerary:

Below is the itinerary for our 11 day trip, below are some of the considerations:

Gilgit Baltistan Map

• We will reach Fairy Meadows in the afternoon after 3 – 4 hours of trekking.
• On day 4, we may not be able to visit Domel.
• On day 5, we will have to stay in Astore, we can make it to Tarishing if we reach Astore around 3pm. In this case we will be leaving Minimarg early.
• On Day 8, I would advise to stay at Karimabad, see off Asif next morning and depart for either Naltar or Phandar.
