Red Tape

 A visa is required and must be obtained prior to arrival. A
single entry tourist visa is valid for three months from arrival. It is
possible to extend visas in Islamabad.



Peaks below 6500m do not require a permit or a liaison officer in Pakistan.

When to Climb

The climbing season is from July to mid October. The monsoon from the Bay of Bengal moves westward and reaches
Pakistan in late June through to September. The Karakoram is in the
Himalayan rain shadow which limits the effect of the monsoon. However
when the monsoon breaks down country it’s usually stormy in the
mountains. The weather can change very quickly with snow fall higher up
or heavy rain at lower altitudes. Climbing in the Karakoram requires
considerable patience. There can be extended spells of good weather; the
difficulty thing is predicting when they will happen.
