What should I know about Mountain Climbing Pakistan?
A mountain climbing adventure in Pakistan is not for everyone. The mountains of this stunning country are high and mighty, rugged and remote, beautiful and stern. Located mostly in the Karakoram Range, the mountains of Pakistan are towering giants that few dare to explore. However, although the infrastructure is bare, the base camps are easy to get to from the Karakoram Highway and there is less paperwork than that required to climb in other high altitude ranges. In fact, no paperwork at all is required to climb below 6500m. Additionally, mountain climbing in Pakistan is less expensive than in other more popular locations. Of course, going with a certified guide is a must for logistics and safety.
