Yak Sarai Expedition We were cursing over selves that's why we have chosen extremely dangerous and horrible destinations for our trek. We were stuck up and had covered half way of our trek. There was no way to leave the expedition as going back was not an option. We stepped forward and horrible and terrifying Chhateboi Glacier was waiting for us. An ocean of solid ice, with sharp-edged creases, opening its mouth to swallow anything. Porters were stepping inch by inch ahead of us to rescue us in case of any mishap.
In this memorable picture, myself I Shahid Aziz is trying to cross the same razor-edged craves, with the help of Mr. Nageer Khan (late), Mr. Keenja Bai (late) while in the background (L to R) Mr. Baqa Sheikh, Mr. Mustansar Hussain Tarar, Mian Farzand Ali (late) and Mr. Khalid Nadeem.
