Great Trango Tower is one of the most spectacular granite towers in the world; a dream come true for ardent rock climbers. We climb a very straight forward and technically moderate route up the north face from our base camp on the Dunge Glacier. Our trip begins in Islamabad and then onwards by private bus along the Karakoram highway to Skardu. From here we travel via Sport Utility Vehicles and/or jeeps into Askole where we start the 7-day trek into our base camp below Uli Biaho and the Trango Towers. A fascinating and mesmerizing place with huge granite rock towers reaching thousands of feet high, dropping down to the churning moraine of the Dunge and Trango glaciers. A trek up towards Concordia, near K2 base camp helps us acclimatize for the climb.
