In the danger zone. Lower Basque (Cesen) route on K2. This serac is a couple thousand feet above these guys. It regularly spits. Best to climb this section early in the morning when everything is frozen solid. In the heat of the day the serac turns this area into a bowling alley

Homework with a view!

Hunza Valley, located at 7,999ft in northern Pakistan is the home of the longest lived people on the planet. The high mountain valley is surrounded by the Himalayan mountains. Northern Pakistan is blessed with the greatest mass of high mountains on earth where the Himalaya, Karakoram, Pamir's, and Hindukush all meet!

As much as the valley is famous for its beauty, the people of Hunza are noted for their friendliness and hospitality. The literacy rate of the Hunza valley is believed to be above 90%, virtually every child of the new generation studies up to at least high school. Many pursue higher studies from prestigious colleges and Universities of Pakistan and abroad.

Hunza People are uniquely healthy and free of disease. Many studies have been done and it is believed that their simple healthy diet of carefully grown organic food and the glacial, living water is their secret to health and long life. Hunza drink directly from glacial streams in the high Himalayas. It is fresh, invigorating, life enhancing, free radical scavenging and delicious.

Hunza has people who routinely live to 120-140 years, in good health with virtually no cancer, degenerative disease, dental caries or bone decay. Hunza people remain robust and strong and are also able to bear children even in old age. Research has proven conclusively that the major common denominator of the healthy long-living people is their local water!

Day 460 - Attabad Lake.
The day we left Karimabad was the day the sun went into hibernation for a while. Two days of sunshine were followed by cutting winds, freezing fingers and heated mattresses that didn't work. Despite the cold, the ride was plenty stellar with no traffic north of Karimabad except the occasional white panel van.

I'd both read and heard about the crossing of Attabad lake from the earlier trailblazing riders, back on the ridgey didge KKH before the chinese had begun boring the tunnels. Looking to where the original road dropped into the lake, I tried to fathom the mess of having to haul bikes on and off the shore using the timber boats. No doubt it would have been worth the effort once on onboard though - this place is just way too riveting!

Vintage Eddie Bauer Kara Koram Parka

ヴィンテージのダウンといえばな、カラコラム。
純然たるアウトドアアイテムのはずですが、どことなく品があるように思っています。
フェードしたグリーンの色合いも気に入っています。

I was sorting my travel photos and found this old shot of high mountains and lakes from my trip up the Karakoram Highway to the China-Pakistan border. It's surreal scenery, quite unlike anywhere else I've been. And there's no-one else there... #karakoram #mountains #reflection #lake #altitude #serenity #natureatitsbest #landscape #neverstopexploring #igworldclub #igworld #nature #naturelovers #travel #igworld_global #pictureoftheday @instagram
