Mountain Expedition in Pakistan

Mountain Expedition in PakistanA land of magic, mountains, golden beaches & 5000 years of history. Add to that, warm, friendly people, a relaxed lifestyle and an endless variety of landscapes & activities and you'll see why we invite you to make Pakistan your next destination. PAKISTAN - FAR FROM THE ORDINARY Pakistan is a land of contrasts and holds an excellent diversity of habitats ranging from high snow-covered mountains in the north, to vast lush fields and great deserts of Cholistan & Tharparker, to sandy seashores in the south. These mountains, plateaus, plains, deserts, rivers, lakes and seashores project the true & natural beauty of Pakistan.

GEOGRAPHICAL Pakistan has a geo-strategic place in the comity of nations, and is bounded by Iran, Afghanistan and two of the most populous countries in the world: China and India. Blessed with natural resources, its Northern Areas are a white world full of black granite slopes, some of them too steep for snow. This witnesses the unbelievable physical drama combining the world's four highest mountain ranges; the Himalayas, the Karakoram, the Hindukush and the Pamirs, and with them the fertile river basins with many tributaries feeding the mighty Indus river and draining into the warm waters of the Arabian Sea.

Climbing in Pakistan happens between the months of June and September. The length of the expedition will depend on the height of the peak and the length of the walk into base-camp. A general time-frame is to allow six weeks for a peak under 7000m and up to ten weeks for peaks in the 7000-8000m range.

Most expeditions fly into Islamabad. There is an obligatory meeting with the Alpine Club of Pakistan to discuss expedition objectives. Islamabad is also a good place to buy any "on the mountain food," although it is a good idea to bring dehydrated food from home. From Islamabad there is a two to three day drive north up the Karakoram Highway to the start of the walk in to base-camp - a highlight in itself.It is also possible to fly to the northern towns of Gilgit or Skardu although flights are weather dependent.

The walk into base-camp, complete with porters and base-camp staff, can take up to six days depending on the remoteness of the base-camp location. It isn't uncommon to encounter porter strikes, but if the out-fitter has provided a good "guide," they should be able to deal with this. Base-camp will be anywhere between 4000- 5000m.

From there it is up to the climbing team to organise their own acclimatisation and the ascent itself, with base-camp and staff as support. At the end of the expedition there will be another meeting with the Alpine Club representatives to discuss the outcome of the expedition.
