Gilgit city and environs.
Now that we have our Northen base we are very excited to be offering opportunities to share the local area with you. Gilgit has a bustling old city market with a deep history and cultural sights. Our new home is the perfect place to base yourself for a couple of days acclimatising to the north and planning your next adventures into Hunza and Skardu. These Gilgit tours can be combined or done separately.
*Each of our tours includes a small percentage for Zakat (a devotion to giving to those in greatest need). Karakoram Bikers follows the path of love and giving back to humanity. Each time you book a trip with us we are able to help with basic human rights for all. If you are interested in more details about how we do this please feel free to send us a message.
