Like all mountains in Karakoram, Himalaya, Hindu Raj and Hindu Kush Rawalpindi - Islamabad is the gateway to the high mountain of northern Pakistan. Islamabad International airport link the world with dozens of international flights each day. One can reach Chitral by two road links #1 is via the Lawari Pass; One can take a road journey on Grand Truck Road also known as GT road towards NWFP and after about 2 hours turn right to the Mardan Valley before climbing the famous Malakand Pass (this is area where first time British Soldier wear Khaki uniform - Shalwar Kameez, which still the Pakistani soldier wear in this area) the same which link to Swat Valley, one can have lunch in roadside Afghan resturants before turn left to Dir and further to Lawari Pass. All the road journey from Islamabad to Chitral will take about 10 to 12 hours. One can also fly from Peshawar to Chitral. Be prepared for delays due to bad weather, road blockage in the Lawari Pass Section due to landslides.



#2 road link is via the KKH to Gilgit and by the Shandur Pass (the famous and the height Polo ground on earth) to Chitral. Gilgit is about 16 to 18 hours from Islamabad and road journey to Chitral from Gilgit is another day drive.

Noshaq solo climb in 2018

2018 was a good season. There was a solo Noshaq climb by Ɓukasz Kocewiak from Afghan side and the first Afghan woman, Hanifa Yousoufi managed to ascend the mountain.

Due to the varied nature of the expedition, it is difficult to place it in one category. Several characteristic aspects are the following:
- a lonely journey through Central Asia, i.e. Tajikistan and Afghanistan;
- traveling through a war-torn country in the immediate vicinity of an armed conflict;
- the cultural and anthropological character of the expedition, that is to know the unique Wakhi people culture;
- climbing part (estimated M4), i.e. an area requiring the use of technical ice axes at the altitude of 6800 m;
- organization of a high-mountain expedition from scratch in an area without infrastructure and agency support;
- practically alone in the Afghan Hindu Kush and ascent to the highest peak of Afghanistan, which is 7492 m high.
