The Core of Braldu Glacier - Shimshal side of Lupke La, Pakistan
Co-ordinates: 36° 7'45.29"N, 75°51'53.66"E
Braldu is one of the remotest glaciers in North of Pakistan with an approximate length of 35 km. There is no direct approach to the glacier and either one has to cross Snow Lake and Lupke La pass from Baltistan side or has to go over Shimshal Pass from Shimshal side to reach this glacier.
This shot was taken on third day on Braldu glacier and this part was towards end of lower crevasse filled area. The terrain was very tough to move on and was taking lots of time to go up, down, sideways, around the blocked areas either due to ice walls or crevasses. After this section came a long walk on relatively flatter upper white glacier till we stopped near high camp area after sunset.
