Spantik Expedition is a mountaineering journey to Spantik Peak in the Karakoram, which involves strenuous climbing and trekking at high altitude. Spantik Mountain is Lying to the south of the great Hispar glacier and standing above upper Chogolungma, it offers an attractive climb. The approach path to the beautiful campsites along the Chogolungma Glacier offers vistas of mountain scenery with innumerable high peaks. Spantik Expedition is perfect for every mountaineer’s to prepare themselves for higher altitude Himalayan and Karakoram Peaks.
Rising to 7,027 meters in elevation, the locals refer to Spantik as the Golden Pillar, for the incredible golden-yellow hue the mountain turns during the sunset. Over the course of four weeks, we will make our way from Islamabad up to the mountain. Along the way, we will enjoy an incredibly scenic approach through verdant valleys surrounded by snowcapped peaks. Afterward, expect a long and challenging ascent through glaciated valleys and up behind the peak.
The plan will be to ascend Spantik from the north, which is known as the normal route. This does not require much technical mountaineering know-how (in fact, Spantik is considered the easiest 7,000 meter high peak to climb anywhere in the world), but is still very physically challenging. After a grueling, but rewarding climb, we’ll enjoy the phenomenal views from the top before beginning our descent and returning to Islamabad.
