This is the story of one man's travels through northern Pakistan, using Gilgit as a centre. You will be taken westward to the fascinating Kalash Valleys with a surviving unique culture, struggling to maintain their identity in the harsh and rugged mountains, bordering Afghanistan. The story continues to Baltistan and up through the Karakoram Mountains and the infamous Karakoram Highway that links the country to China via the Khunjerab Pass, the highest road border crossing in the world. The journey goes eastwards across the Deosai plateau which have an average elevation of 4,000m and the disputed areas of Jammu and Kashmir. Finally there is the ascent to base camp of K2, the world's second highest but most deadly of mountains.
