The Minapin glacier sweeps down from the 16th km – long fluted snowy ridge that connects Rakaposhi (7788M) and Diran (7265 M). Minapin village in Upper Nagar sits along the Minapin River’s true right (east) bank above the confluence of the Minapin and Hunza rivers.

The excellent short trek from Minapin village to Rakaposhi Base camp known locally as Taga Phari is an ideal introduction to Karakoram trekking. Easily accessible from the KKH, the trek follows a good trail offers sweeping vistas of Rakaposhi and Diran an is the stander route to the base camp of both peaks.

Trekkers in top physical condition visit Taga phari on day hike from Minapin village but most trekkers find that dividing the 1250M accent in to two days lets them enjoy the trek’s many pleasures.
