Yasin to Yarkhun Chitral over Thui Ann(4499 m)

     Thui Pass--4499 m:
  This is an easy interesting trek of 5 to7days in the Hindu Kush range. The best season to go on it from June to October to enjoy the landscape and meeting local communities along the way and Explore about their way of living, culture, and traditions. These experiences add to the joys of your holidays as I have experienced during my guiding. The people are friendly and helpful always. It gives amazing scenery of the snow-capped mountains all along the way welcoming the climbers to Explore them and be the first ones most of them are unclimbed yet.
 The treks takes a week time from Islamabad to Islamabad.
   The trek starts from Nalti Thoi a village at the altitude of 2600 meters with 150 houses holding eight members in average in every household.
   Nalti to Lasht 3 to 4 hours.
The walking starts on jeep road up to one hour and then on clear path along the Thoi River with amazing scenery ahead with the views of Thoi 1 6600 meters. After a 3 hours walk you will reach to summer village lasht with clear spring water and soft grassy campsite. Your porters will celebrate the evening with camp fire singing songs. you will have great stay night here.

Lasht to Sholtalling 3 to 4 hours
 This day gives immense joy to the nature lover to walk along the river which is called Mushibar River is the name of the valley, it flows down from Keronbar to the east and Qalandargum and Gashuchi glaciers you will have gigantic views of the both of the glaciers next day of your trek. The path is smooth along the juniper and birch trees and with grea.t views of snow-capped peaks ahead the valley. You will reach to the campsite Sholtalling a place with stone shelter and grassy campsite with superb views of the valley that adds to the joy of your holidays.
Sholtalling to Gashuchi 4 to 5 hours
   The last day in Thui valley. The path is as the previous days easy and smooth for first two hours and the you will walk on the Gashuchi Glacier for two more hours on the whit ice and some parts on the rocky moraines of the glacier your guide will take care of you of the crossing some of the wide crevasses on the glacier.Soon after crossing the glacier you will be in the campsite of Gashuchi a nice camp site with mountain onions around the campsite as the name of the place Ghashu for onions in the local language Brushaski which is spoken by the people of Yasin and Hunza. The campsite is at the altitude of  4100 meters you may feel a bit cold after the sun set and before the sun rise in the morning.I hope you will enjoy the scenery of the valley which gives amazing views backwards the valley you come up.

Gashuchi to Golpigal 6 to 7 hours
  The most interesting day of trek that you are going to cross the Thui Pass 4999 meters and get into another region Yarkhun Valley an amazing valley of Chitral district KPK(N.W.F.P).
   This day will be little hard for you until to reach the pass you have to climb about 500 meters from the campsite on a steep way along the grassy path in the first two hours with superb views of the white peaks of the both sides of the pass and the on the rocky path close to the. \\\if you are lucky to have clear weather for the views from the pass is incredible. From the pass you are descending to the campsite of Golpigal which is wonderful campsite with clear spring water to drink and wash. dYou will have comfortable stay night after long day walk as I experienced in the past.

Golpigal to Gazin or directly to Chitral 3 to 8 hour
