Hispar La trek is nestled amidst a high-altitude Glacier basin, over 16 kilometers wide, located at the head of the Biafo and Hispar la pass in the kingdom of the Baltistan region of Pakistan. Just right there, Hispar Pass (Hispar La) is a high-altitude, non-technical mountain pass in the Karakoram Range in Nagar District.
