This highway of ice connects two ancient mountain kingdoms: Hunza in the west with Baltistan in the east.We begin our walk from Askoli towards K-2 then shortly head west onto the Biafo Glacier. After trekking three to four days we arrive at Banta Campsite located on an ablation Snow Lake Biafo Hispar Trek valley below the granite peaks of the Ogre (7813 m). The walk takes us past glistening clear lakes, bright spots of green grass, glorious wild flowers and the ever present vertical snow covered peaks hanging above to complete this dazzling scene. The next two days take us over the white covered Biafo Glacier to Snow Lake. We then make the exhilarating walk up to Hispar Pass continuously overwhelmed by the incredible views.

Bublimotin, Bubli Motin, Bublimating or Ladyfinger Peak, is a distinctive rock spire in the Batura Muztagh, the westernmost subrange of the Karakoram range in Pakistan. It lies on the southwest ridge of the Ultar Sar massif, the most southeasterly of the major groups of the Batura Muztagh. The whole massif rises precipitously above the Hunza Valley to the southeast. Bublimotin, while having little prominence above the saddle with nearby Hunza Peak, is particularly notable for being a sharp, relatively snowless rock spire among snow peaks. This, combined with its height above the valley, makes it quite eye-catching; hence the distinctive name. It provides a 600 m (1830 ft) rock climb (with a very serious alpine approach) and has been the scene of some notable paragliding.

There are many symbols of Hunzai people common with the army of Alexader The Great watch above videos. There is clear connection of Hunzai people with Ancient Macedonia.
There are few places where Alexander the Great's influence has not been felt His vast empire spread from the Atlantic shores of Spain to the plains of India His example has been admired and followed for generations to come, and his legacy has been deeply felt by the entire world It is said that Julius Caesar himself began to weep as he stood under the shadow of a statue of Alexander the Great, for Alexander had conquered half the world by 19, and Caesar not even made a name for himself by that age And how was he Albanian in any way? Well, first of all Alexander was son of Philip II and Olympia Olympia, was the princess of Epirus, a province in Northern Greece, considered to be modern day Albania, and an ancient territory of Albanian tribes This relation of Alexander having Albanian blood is considered somewhat feasible and acceptable by the history books, but we want to stretch out the enigma of Alexander Initially there is the question of where and to what people Alexander belonged to It is known that Alexander the Great, was really Alexander of Macedon, and the current flag of Macedonia is the ancient sun flag of Alexander's army This seems reasonable, but what really were the "Macedon" people As stated in the Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia, "the Slavs, occupied much of the area Balkans by the 6th century AD", so it cannot be possible for the now largely Slavic Macedonia to be a descendant from Alexander the Great Slavic tribes did not come into the region of Northern Greece until well after Alexander's death, which leaves only two people left, the Albanians and the Greeks It is important tot note that the history books have not labeled Alexander Greek, and therefore he can only be Albanian. Albanian tribes are the earliest known to occupy northern Greece, and that allows Alexander only one nationality Alexander did not have Albanian blood, he was an Albanian To Albanians this fact seems very clear, for we have named our currency lek, after Leka I Madh The Barbaric war style of the Illyrians was deeply rooted in Alexander's spirit, which is good reason for his expertise as a general and a conqueror More proof of Alexander's Albanian ancestry would have to be the close relations he had with the King of the Illyrians, practically a man of his own kin There is an ancient legend that the Illyrian king gave Alexander a large, beastly, dog to commemorate his achievements The beast was so ferocious, Alexander decided to make it hunt bears The dog showed no interest in this endeavor and lay lazily without moving This angered Alexander and he had the dog killed When the king of the Illyrians heard of this he sent him another dog, this time with a message of "not wasting the dog's time with small things" This time Alexander had the dog fight a lion, which the dog quickly broke the back of, and then an Elephant, who the dog forced off a cliff The extensive diplomacy between Alexander and the Illyrians only suggests that Alexander was an Albanian himself Also, there is the conquered territory of Alexander When looking at a map of his advances, oddly enough Illirium and Northern Greece is not touched by his armies Yet, the Illyrian and Northern Greek tribes did not have armies capable of facing the Great Alexander But Alexander considered them as one, they were all Albanian Alexander could not possibly conquer his own land That is why this area remained untouched Accepting Alexander's Albanian ancestry opens a vast world of possibilities There is of course the long Ptolemy dynasty of Egypt that followed after Alexander's death, started by one of Alexander's generals and childhood friend Accepting Alexander as an Albanian, would mean accepting a big part of Egypt's history to be determined by an Albanian dynasty, that of Ptolemy Alexander's genius and accomplishments opened a great chapter in the history of Albania A chapter that has never been forgotten -----------
