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.
