June 8, 2010. Day 8

From Jye and Tiziana

We were all so excited to start our journey along the Baltoro Glacier from Paiju to Urkdaras at 6.30 am. The trek was quite a challenge for the Young Explorers and the Mike Horn Team as the terrain was extremely difficult. It ranged from very slippery ice to unstable boulders. We also experienced all four seasons of weather today, from snow to sunny blue skies. The surroundings were incredibly beautiful, however it was so important that we all concentrated on potential hazards.

We all found time to enjoy the majestic mountains of the Karakorams. On the approach to Urdukas the Trango Towers, Cathedral Rock and in the far distance Broad Peak made for an amazing trek. All the young explorers had a great day learning all about the Baltoro glacier and many of the surrounding peaks; with this knowledge we hope be ambassadors for Pakistan to promote its beauty, and particularly work together on cleanup projects to further improve this amazing region.
