Wild Frontiers Adds Brand New Tour to Pakistan

Adventure tour operator Wild Frontiers has added a brand new tour, "Walking in Pakistan: Journey to the Roof Of The World," to mark its 25 years of operation in the Asian country.  

Home to some of the highest mountains on earth, Northwest Pakistan provides the setting for the newest tour. Beyond its impressive collection of summits, many of which top out at over 22,965 feet, the region has a patchwork of colorful ethnic clans, remote mountain villages and visually spectacular trekking trails. This tour is also FCDO-friendly, making travel insurance easier to acquire. From the Karakoram to the Shigar Mountains, this tour will have travelers among the clouds. 

Travelers will leave the "chaos and clamor" of the capital behind and head towards the silent and serene landscapes of the Karakoram Mountains. Heading first through the Khaplu Valley, the gateway into the Hushe ranges and beyond, the tour begins a journey into the land of ice giants, where the likes of

(25,659 feet), Gasherbrum I (26,509 feet) and K-2 (28,251 feet) provide a majestic backdrop to the first trekking base.

Wild Frontiers then heads for the beautiful Thalle Valley for a non-glacial four-day trek over the Thalle La (15,000 feet) to Baltistan's historic Shigar Fort enjoying alpine scenery with majestic views of the Shigar Mountains to the west and the Siachen Range to the east. This is one of Wild Frontiers’ finest trekking tours and well suited for those seeking a more active way to experience the grandeur of Pakistan's mountains without undertaking a significantly longer or technically challenging expedition.The tour is being offered from $3,711 for 14 days, based on two people sharing. Price excludes international flights and includes all meals, transport, entrance fees, accommodation and an expert team of guides

Other Pakistan tours from Wild Frontiers include a 15-day "Hindu Kush Adventure;" a 12-day "Journey Through The Indus Valley;" a 12-day "Summer Mountain Explorer;" and a 12-day "Under a Pagan Moon" tour.
