    Question 4x4Engaged? Winter in September!!

    The picture below shows the upper end of an active or moving unique (Bualtar)Hopar Glacier. Unique? where human life is found above Glacier. Because of constant breaking of ice the glacier is moving right along at about 8 inches per day. The glacier is approximate 20km long in distance. Take with you your best gripping shoes because the surface is very slippery.
    The melt waters fall into the hydro power station, and then carve a constantly changing path & merge with Hispar water & finally into Hunza River.
    I visited this Glacier back in 2002 with my wife & same was witnessed by 4x4 Engaged? the unspoiled beauty of Pakistan in September 2011.

    i don't think any pics were taken of the road track going up to Eagle's Nest. It was too dark and we were tired.

    Afterwards, we were just too focused on going to WIS and aftewards admiring WIS
    No probs bhai.

    I can only imagine the exictment of finally going to WIS, after those long, tiresome DIY's and crossing steep road type structures during the night.

    Looking forward to the WIS episode.

    Sync did such a great job along with Janj and with Aamir bhai monitoring that the inJun only purred with affection after the Gilgit DIY.

    All the way and back to Lahore!

    Question The WIS Surprise

    4x4Engaged? Winter in September!! - DSC07547

    Janj had kept the Winter In September (WIS) destination surprise from the team so far in the trip. We tried, we played mind games, we counter surprised but he was consistent and successful in hiding it till we arrived in Hunza.

    So after the warm and nice dinner in Eagle's Nest he finally broke the silence and informed what is WIS.

    Our destination next day was Hopper Nagar. One of many towns in Nagar, Baltistan and famous as home of the great Baulter Glacier, also known locally as Hopper Glacier. The glacier is about 20Km long and is the worlds fastest moving glacier at about 8 inches per day. Another unique feature is that this is one of those few glaciers in the world where life (people and all) is above the glacier.

    Janj had visited it before with family in 2002 and now he had got us all excited as well.

    So around noon that day, the seventh day since our departure from Lahore, we were ready to see the great Baulter Glacier. But hey, we have to get to Hopper Nagar first.

    Now I did mention to y'all that keep in mind the rock after the bridge?

    4x4Engaged? Winter in September!! - IMG 20110908 00448 1

    So here we stand right under it and now you can imagine the scale of the pics posted yesterday.

    Why we are standing here ? Well, first we had to get our special gear on. Yep, we couldn't proceed to WIS without our 4x4 Engaged? clothing. and NO, that was not an order but the desire of the team.

    Thumbs up With love, from JEEP inc.

    Only Janj had gone to Hopper before. Rest of us were like kids high on sugar. BTW, that doesn't mean Janj was not excited. So we couldn't leave without our signature Thumbs Up !
