Gilgit-Baltistan: The Forgotten Land

I probably shouldn’t say this but Pakistan certainly took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting anything half as handsome as what it turned out to be. The Northern Areas of Pakistan, specifically Gilgit-Baltistan, are majestic. If you happen to visit Gilgit-Baltistan, you could easily compare it to Switzerland we often gawk at during Yash Chopra movie sessions.

Glacier crossing in Pakistan – 7 weeks in the high mountains

A great one is about to start. We arrived in Islamabad 2 days ago. I am now with the team getting ready to travel North to the high mountains of the Karakoram. We are refueling the O2 cylinders for high altitude flights, buying dry food, and spending hours on Google earth, analyzing landing on the glaciers of Hispar, Biafo and Concordia.

Pakistan – Bivouac flight through the Great Karakoram

Hi all, we are back to civilization after 20 days into the high mountains of the great Karakoram, Pakistan. Today Islamabad looks like New York! I had a great welcoming by the Red Bull Pakistan crew. I can finally sleep in a real bed and leave my dry food for the next expeditions… They even get us a personal driver taking us around the city.
