It takes two to three hours from Minapin Village to Hapakun, a very pleasant and clean camp-site. The local community of porters is hospitable, tourist-friendly, and very hardworking. Usually, we start trekking in the morning to avoid the heat of the sun. From Hapakun to Taghaphari (Rakaposhi Base Camp) it takes around 3 to 4 hours approximately. Night cramps can be deployed either at hapakun or Rakaposhi base camp. It entirely depends upon the schedule and the will of the planner. As both places are dear and clean to stay in a favorable environment.

While heading to Diran Base Camp one has to cross the kacheli / Minapin Glacier that takes around 3 hours to cross. We can camp there at kacheli or diran base camp. But it again depends on the planner and what trekkers are willing to go and back in one day in 7 to 8 hours.
