Rakaposhi Base Camp

Our first trek and a warm up to the Pakistan mountain

It was grey weather in Minapin, but we decided to trek to basecamp and hope that the weather would clear

Minapin Guest house. Just like grandmas place.

The half way point looking back down towards Minapin village

The boys playing cricket

Arriving at base camp we find the view is still quite spectacular

Just around the corner we find a porters tent and so take advantage of the offer for some tea to escape the rain

The next day blue skies come and go

We set up camp and consume copious amounts of tea for the next two days waiting for the clouds to clear in hope of seeing Rakaposki peak

And distant peaks show themselves through the cloud

The day after the cloud begins to lift

Back in the village Pete lurks suspiciously by the herb garden just as the farmer departs on his tractor

Alas we have to head down the mountain and be content with distant views
