July Grand Karadoram Trek

We are a group of 3 booked on a trek for the month of July 2013 with Vertical Explorers. Would love for others to join us as the cost would come down for all. Please reply if interested. No technical climbing skills needed, but we are traversing glaciers, etc. Promises to be one of the best treks in the world. Hope to hear from you!

Sounds great. Have a safe time.

Something that may or may not affect you. Ramadan 2013 is starting for a month on 9th July +/- 1 day depending on moon sighting.

You can get the trip day by day plan by going to www.vepakistan.com and looking up the Grand Karakoram Traverse. Sorry about the mispelling in the title - I can't seem to get it corrected! The Trek basically starts in Skardu, traverses on the Baltoro Glacier, goes to K2 Base Camp etc. It is listed by many as one of the great treks on the earth.

Yes, we are aware that the trip takes place during Ramadan, but our guides - Vertical Explorers - who are a Pakistani Company, assure us that this will be OK.

Thanks.

Also drop a line in to Travelbuddy.com where you might come across travelers with similar plans.

Deosai opens only in July this means you can't go through in June.

@ AdeelH.

Yeah you have to go to Kaghan first in order to go to over Babusar pass.
