Rakaposhi Base Camp Trek Nagar Valley & Hunza

9 Days

9 Days Rakaposhi Base Camp Trek Nagar Valley & Hunza – 6 Days. Let’s pack up for some adventure trek. We (Explore Nagar Tours & Travels) planned to conduct an amazing trek to Rakaposhi base camp, Diran base camp / Kacheli Lake trek. This trek route is located in the region of Minapin Village in the Nagar Valley of Northern Areas Gilgit-Baltistan. The trek is very close to the Karakoram highway. It has been considered very accessible and is compatible with all ages and people. You will find all on one while trekking toward Rakaposhi basecamp and diran base camp. You will be going through dense forests, meadows, pastures, peaks, grounds, camping sites and on top of that a one-view window of diran and Rakaposhi peaks with the long paved minapin glacier.

This is one of the shortest and easiest treks leading to above 7000M Karakoram peaks base camps with a sweeping view from Rakaposhi to Diran. The Minapin Glacier spread down from the 16km long dense snowy ridge that connects the Rakaposhi and Diran. The excellent short and easy trek from Minapin to Rakaposhi Base Camp, also known Tagaphari is the ideal introduction to Karakorum trekking that is an easy and soft adventure in the Karakorum Mountains.

Rakaposhi basecamp trek route and distance.

It takes two to three hours from Minapin Village to Hapakun, a very pleasant and clean campsite. The local community of porters is hospitable, tourist-friendly, and very hardworking. Usually, we start trekking in the morning to avoid the heat of the sun. From Hapakun to Taghaphari (Rakaposhi Base Camp) it takes around 3 to 4 hours approximately. Night cramps can be deployed either at hapakun or Rakaposhi base camp. It entirely depends upon the schedule and the will of the planner. As both places are dear and clean to stay in a favorable environment.

While heading to Diran Base Camp one has to cross the kacheli / Minapin Glacier which takes around 3 hours to cross. We can camp there at kacheli or diran base camp. But it again depends on the planner and what trekkers are willing to go and back in one day in 7 to 8 hours.
