Fondest memory: The Central Asia Institute is a US based not-for-profit organisation providing basic sanitation and works projects in Baltistan and other regions of Central Asia. CAI have built a school in Hushe and during the days at the campground we would hear children singing in the school - the CAI also built latrines along the Baltoro Glacier to improve the sanitation for Porters and Trekkers alike.
