World's Most Dangerous Highway - Fairy Meadows, Pakistan
Good morning. We. Are in the town of Sheila's. Right now it's, a big day because we're going on a hike, up the, mountain we're. Taking our van to some jeeps and then. The, jeeps are gonna drive up the mountain and, then we're gonna offload we, have some Porter's helping us carry stuff up the mountain and we're gonna camp out at, base camp on, one. Of the highest mountains in the world. So. Pretty. Exciting, stuff can't, wait. Ah. Wow. Pakistan, you're. Just full of views I have, never seen mountains like. This I've, seen a lot of different mountain ranges around, the world but. None. That. Were just full. Of barren, rock and so immense and so many of them like our whole Drive yesterday was. Non-stop. Mountains. These. Stretch all the way from, the, Himalayas, China, just. Massive. Their massive, mountains I. Promise. There's, a chance it might break but. Anything. For the vlog right anything for the boy you, know what this was the kind of stuff I would do before I was vlogging if there was a rooftop I'm gonna try and find out how to get there and then. And, then vlogging, just got to happened and you, can capture that. You, got this I'm not as brave as, the. Rooftop. Ninja. You. Got it boom look, at that, landed. It. Quickly, went to the shop to get supplies for our hike I got, I, got, some Gatorade, and. Toilet, paper that's. All I need it is bare essential. Toilet. Paper is, necessity. Especially, if you're not used to washing. Your tush with water. That. Is an acquired skill, how. Are you at washing your tush with water I'm. A pro pro I'm a season. But gun veteran. And. I'm not too shabby with the plastic, one as well or the one that you just toss, it with your hand impressive. Thanks man okay, we'll, get that tutorial later. This. Is your initiation into, vlogging here yeah, a. Bail. Warning, day I was. A little scary, we. Were unprepared for, the car to move. Dangerous. Being. Beat. In the back. What's, in that. These. Jeeps are from the 40s and 50s they, were bought by the Pakistani, army. To. Use from from the Americans, to use as military vehicles. Then, in the 70s, once who have made redundant nerve action they, were auctioned, and who all bought by tour operators, oh wow the terrain we're going on now after. Coaster the CPIC pop tour bus cannot go it. Has to be the stream has to be this Jeep very cool forties and fifties these are made in so we're talking like 60 70 years old yeah really. They're looking good look feel that. Beer. Steel. Thick. Thick, Jeep, wow. That. Hurt actually I knew, about the VIP one yes. I don't, know what that means, no. See where. Are we headed right now fairy. Meadows which. Is basically the the redundant. Base camp for, nanga. Parbat but it's the most beautiful one with the best view so, the actual one day that they use for the base camp now is on the other side the mountain gives, an easier climb but they used to think this one fairy meadows was the easiest climbs have you used to climb from here it's. Known as one of most beautiful spots in the country amazing. Have you done this before no I've not been in this area and you've lived in Pakistan how, long I lived, here 11. Years you, know let's say what we driven for 24, hours of pure driving at lea right. So. You know you got put in the work to come see this right right you, guys are, probably like. Pakistani. People I would, say not more than apart for the people who live here it's forest wise I wouldn't, say more than a couple, of million opinion.
So. One percent of the population so. You guys are well ahead of most of them nice. Yeah. Amazing. Oh, okay. So this is the. Most dangerous highway, in the world and I. Can see why you, only have maybe three meters, before. This drop-off and that is, that. That's almost 90 degrees like you're. Going down if. You veer off the road a tiny little bit if. You have to swerve if, a rock breaks like this there's no surviving, that like you're. Tumbling. Tumbling. 500, feet. Which is breaking. Glad. We're not crossing that bridge that would be a little scary. Because. Nothing, we've done so far is being scary. They're. So close to the edge. Nikolas. One. One wrong turn. Things. We do for adventure. Starting. To make sense, why this, is called one of the most dangerous roads. In. Advance. What. Do you think crazy, I've never I mean look we did the other side of Pakistan but that wasn't as intense drive, I've ever done that was, like wow wow, oh yeah. You, lived men you live to, tell the story. More. To cover how, was that drive that was one of the best things I've ever done. So stoked right now amazing, oh. I loved it I loved it it it, was like part. Adventurous. Part scary, I'm, gonna die but I'll. Be happy. Yeah, my stomach. With. No safety barriers, no. One tried and tested it before the. Real-life roller coaster you just go and find out what's up I hope you enjoyed the ride. Dangerous. Road in the world which, a and now, we are starting, our three, hours hike and it's. A steady uphill walk. All the way to the fairy meadows the, world renowned most, beautiful, place in Pakistan with. Wonderful, views of nanga parbat so. We. Are walking to those cabins. And, in, ten minutes we'll get there where some, hot lunch is ready whoa and after enjoying this hot lunch we will start our hike. Before. Getting to the cabin above was a mobile idea would you stop you're right. Well. You, just can. Say. Bye bye and check off you wake up yeah yeah you, will be up there like couple, of hours before us so. Make sure you. Ask them to prepare some tea for us Yeah right there I will get your bed man I know you are going to get the best room up there. See. You taking a horse and. Then he gets the best room. I. See. It's. Our meal before, the hike. Cauliflower. Which, is aloo. Whose. Movie Oh potato. Okay. I'll. Go get it. Gobi. Is. Cauliflower. Even. Beyond sky's. The limit. Hastily we. Have, started our hike we're. Going to the very top that. Behind. Me, about. Three hours. This. Is uber uber Pakistan. I. Mean. What. Am I gonna ride a horse in the mountains of Pakistan again. Right. You got to take advantage we're. Going to be climbing, to, 3,000. Meters. That. Is three kilometers above. Sea level the. Other guys in the group are making, fun of me saying. I'm a deserter. But. Uh not. Doing the hike and, I'm on the horse I'm. Gonna do the hike I just wanted the experience of riding the horse, I'll. Just give it another minute well, that relax here. How about. Okay. So I got off the horse walked. For about 20 minutes I'm, back. On the horse, feeling. Very short of breath and my backpack is like 30 pounds. I'm. Not used to hiking and altitude we. Hike back home in Canada but it's. Not a high altitude that's. Like around lakes. So. And. It doesn't even matter if you're in. Shape. Altitude. Affects. Different people. No, matter no matter, what your weight no matter what your athleticism I've. Seen athletes. That, can't do, mountains and I've seen people who are way overweight, just. Fly, up mountains without a problem, so. We have stopped at the halfway point people are taking a pee horses taking a pee and. Let. Me just be honest with, you guys for a second I hate. Climbing. Mountains I've really, disliked it I've done a lot of mountain climbing in my life, I've. Cracked I've, climbed the Himalayas, have climbed the Tatras I've climbed the, Rocky Mountains, and. I. Just, I don't. Enjoy it the same way I enjoy, hiking through. Woods at like. At. Ground level that's, my kind of hiking even some, Hills but, hiking like super, high up I just. I can't do it I'm like catching my breath and I'm looking down at my feet and I'm exhausted, and I can't even take in the sights because. My, body's just. Absorbed. All my, energy, so I. Am, enjoying this horse put, it that way okay I am very impressed. That. You. Kept up with the horses. It's. Been ten minutes no one's come. Jump. You see, I. You know what she. Saw me the faucet what happened, no. No. Let's go see what, was a female and, the other horse wasn't me I didn't get this pot roast, okay I did get the audio spider room learning other, horse to go home. Got it, I'm. Off the horse again on. The horse off the horse and it's, our first sign of, snow. Whoo. Once. You reach a certain altitude, yeah. It's no snow-capped. Mountains. Look. At that. Beautiful. Oh, okay. So we've. Now dismounted, the horses and. We're on foot. The. Last little bit of the. Trek.
It's. Tough it's. Very tough Mountaineers, people who hike mountains why. Props. To you guys cuz, geez. Yeah. It's. Not easy, okay. I walked. About half the. Way up, the. Other half was on the horse but. Man I. Am. Sweaty. And, exhausted. I. Can't wait, to chug, like a liter of water and. Take. Off this backpack, geez, thing's, heavy. What. A. Gorgeous. Place to spend the night. The. Sacrifice, is. Worth the reward, right. Right, be sad yeah yeah. We're, still waiting on a, few. Of the people that that. Didn't. Take the, horse so. They're. There. Behind I just. Hope they make it before sundown because. It. Would suck to be climbing at night I've done that before, it's. Not fun at all you. Made it bro made. It. You. Did it. Killer. These. Cabins, were gonna be spending. The night in. Wow. The. Word awesome. Is. Used, too. Often. That. From. Moments like this and views like this get. Described, as awesome because they they. Create off and inspire, off. This. Is. What awesome truly, means. How. Crazy. Was. That Jeep ride that, it was like it was like them one of the most incredible, things I've ever done in my life. It was both scary, and adventurous. And like thrilling. And we. Were so close to the edge but, the views were spectacular, I, I've. Never done any my chairs, turning, I've. Never done anything, like that in my life and I don't know when I'm gonna have another opportunity, to do something like that these, are just some of the incredible experiences. That Pakistan, has to offer but, not a lot of people know because not many tourists, go there soon, they're gonna open up their visa application, process so it's gonna be a lot easier to apply and to get into Pakistan, but. I mean I hope you guys enjoyed this video the next one that's coming out is us coming down, the mountain so we're doing all that stuff in Reverse. Then we, go to Hunza. Valley. Hoons. Valley is one.
