Porters on Biafo Glacier, Pakistan

Crossing the Glacier

Flickr member Zolashine has posted a spectacular image taken with his Ricoh GR of porters carrying gear across the Biafo Glacier during a trek from Snow Lake to Hispar La, Pakistan.

The Karakoram Region is an area I’d love to visit some day. Highly unlikely but one can dream.


  1. Love the photo. I’ve got the privilege of trekking again in Nepal later in the year so thanks for a warm-up photo of nice mountains.

  2. Thanks neihtn2012 and thegrowingvine. Understand that I did not take this image, Zolashine up on flickr did. I’d love to get to that area some day (prefer it to Nepal) although I’m not sure I could handle the distances, altitude, or much else. Still, one can dream.
