Guide/Porter required for Pakistans restricted zones

by sanfairyanne » Fri Oct 14, 2016 10:17 pm

I'm planning to go to the Karakorums for six months in 2017 (June - November) It's my intention to go to the mountains one week out of each month. I wish to hike on the Charakusa, Baltoro, Biafo and Gondogoro glaciers. None of these treks require climbing, they are of course in restricted zones, so it is my understanding that I need a guide. Unfortunately nobody seems interested in taking one person to the mountains even though I have ample proof that I am capable and strong. I wonder if someone can put me in touch with the name and contact details of a reputable guide who'll bother to reply to my emails.

Many thanks in advance.

Not sure if Afzal is still guiding, but I'm sure he can put you on the right track.

Hit me up if you have any specific questions. I was just in Pakistan and climbed G2. Here is my write up if it might be helpful.
