And this is Russia ... ie: what are you worried about?


Seems like the writer is a bit confused to where Khan Tengri is :)

Nice report anyway.

Anyone have any good reports about guides/operators from this neck of the woods? It just seems every report I read isn't exactly ... Positive. I prefer to use local guides/outfitters but as I said not many positive reports... I'd like to hear the good reports and recommendations....

7summits club seems to get a lot of good reports. Of course their prices did go up when the popular Dark Summit book came out and had a lot of positive remarks about them.

Based in Russia, they aren't perhaps genuine local, but more local than any western company.

Hey I might be in the Pamirs this summer.

Radson, You are interested in KT? We should talk. As of now, I have four friends interested in Pik Kommunizma. One of them is Russian and another Kurdish so we got the local connections.

I'm in Kathmandu now so the Pamirs will be a hop and skip away.
