INTRODUCTION:

Trango Adventure has a long track record of organising Laila Peak Expedition in Pakistan. We have had groups successfully Climbed Laila Peak on previous occasions. We designed our itinerary based on Over 40 Years of experience, which is the best in terms of acclimatization, safety and enjoyment.

It is our intention to keep to the day by day itinerary detailed below, although there might be some flexibility due to local conditions or other factors beyond our control. If this is the case the trek leader will do everything possible to work out the changes to the itinerary in order to minimize your inconvenience.

Adventure travel requires an open and flexible attitude. You may experience extreme conditions, unpredictable weather and last-minute changes to the itinerary beyond our control. The ability to work in team is an important aspect of all of our trips. Detailed Itinerary

En route we must cross a number of ‘nullahs’ or small tributary valleys. These nullahs are fed by meltwaters from the glaciers high above the valley and can become impassable by the afternoon as the hot sun goes to work. Our early start from Skardu means that we should not have any problems in this respect.

Our private bus will be waiting at the airport to transfer us to the group hotel and once we have settled in it will be time to take lunch (unless we have experienced unusual flight delays). After lunch the rest of the day is free for independent sightseeing or to relax at the hotel. Your Guide will advise you on the possibilities for sightseeing.

CONTINGENCY DAY IN CASE OF DELAYS,ISLAMABAD:

If driving down the Karakoram Highway we will arrive in Islamabad late afternoon. If we managed to fly the day before then we will spend today sightseeing in Islamabad. In the evening we will have a final group meal.

 Skardu is a ‘weather dependent’ airport which means the planes will only fly here if the visibility allows line of sight to the runway by the pilot on the approach. Fortunately the weather is mostly clear in the Karakoram but local weather conditions can bring cloud and rain from time to time. If we cannot fly we will travel down to Islamabad by road along the spectacular Karakoram Highway. If we flew up to Skardu this will be an added bonus as it is a fantastic travel experience in its own right. The drive down the Indus River to Islamabad takes two days so this is an important contingency day to allow for this. If we have flown to Islamabad this will be a further day for sightseeing in the capital and your leader will advise the group on the options available for today.

Climbing A Mountain In Pakistan.

Pakistan occupies about 880,000 square kilometers of land, it is stretch from the Arabian sea to the high mountains of the Central Asia. Pakistan is a country of contrasts: expansive dusty plains to the high snowy peaks of the Karakoram and the Himalaya in Gilgit Baltistan. Here the world three Great mightiest mountain ranges meet: the Karakoram, the Handukush and the Himalayas. This region is home to some of the world’s most breathtaking mountains. The five of the fourteen highest peaks of the world are here, the mountains of the mountain K2 (8,611), the Magnificent Nanga Parbat (8,126), Hidden Peak(8080 ), Broad Peak (8,047 ), and Gasherbrum II ((8035m ). Gilgit Baltistan (northern areas) has also the largest Glaciers outside the polar glaciers.The scope for Climbing a Mountain in Pakistan is virtually unlimited. Climbing Holidays will depend on what type of climbing you would like to do, how much experience you have, Which season you would like to go, How many days you have available, etc. We have been organizing Expeditions in the Karakoram since 40 years so we have the expertise to help you organizing your next Climbing trip. Our expert Advisers will be happy to assist you. In Pakistan, we have to apply for climbing permits for many Peaks, so if you a know which mountain you want to climb then please let us know in good time so we can arrange this for you.

Climbing & Trekking Permit

Once you have decided which mountain you want to climb we can start the preparations and apply for the necessary permits. A climbing permit is required to climb peaks which are above 6500 meters, a trekking permit is required for some areas, one of them is the Central Karakoram National Park area(CKNP). We have extensive details of all peaks, permit fees, rules and regulations regarding climbing in Pakistan. We will take care of everything so you can focus on your Climbing.

Royalty Fees

At the beginning of each year the Gilgit-Baltistan Council publishes the official royalty fees for the upcoming summer and winter climbing season. This notification is publicly available and makes a distinction in terms of mountain, trekking and waste disposal fees for various areas and the two seasons. We have to apply for the Permits that’s why we need a deposit from you. The royalty fees for the permits are paid to the Gilgit-Baltistan Government and they are not refundable. For more information about the royalty fees please check our Blog and news section.

Government Clearance

All particulars with regard to your Laila Peak expedition, including the details of all members must be sent to us so that we can get the government clearance for the approval of your climbing permit. Additional members can still be added or changed at a later date if needed but it is best to send everything well in advance to prevent any delays at the start of your expedition. We currently advise to apply not later than 3 months in advance as unfortunately we have noticed that the time for clearance is taking longer each year.

Helicopter Rescue Bond

Each expedition has to obtain a helicopter rescue bond of US$10,000/- from Askari Aviation www.askariaviation.comin order to be allowed to commence the expedition. If these rescue services are not used, the bond will be refunded after the end of the expedition minus the administration charges from Askari Aviation. We are able to assist with these arrangements if needed.

All his expenses like food, accommodation and transportation are borne by the expeditions. In addition to the above mentioned standard kit, the Liaison Officer is paid a daily allowance in Rawalpindi / Islamabad as well as in the mountains for his food. A part of his cost, sharing the cook, insurance, provision of two porters for his personal stuff & food while trekking up & one porter while Trekking down is paid by us.

Environment

All expeditions are required to submit an environmental undertaking which states that they will take their garbage with them after the end of the expedition. The Liaison Officer will have to certify that the team has left the mountain clean, if this has not been done satisfactory fines will be imposed. A separate environment waste management fee is charged to each expedition member for maintenance of the mountain environs which is non refundable.

The unconsumed materials have to be re-exported. We have a selection of well-maintained climbing materials which we are renting out to expeditions and items for sale like different variations of climbing rope and gas canisters.

Base Camp Staff & High Altitude Porters

During the Laila Peak Expedition, there will be a complete kitchen team to take care of you at Laila Peak base camp. The number of staff depends on the number of climbers. However, for our normal expeditions ranging from 10-15 members, we provide one head-cook, one assistant-cook and one or two helpers who take care of base camp services.

INTERNAL FLIGHT

SKARDU FLIGHT

Skardu is a weather-dependent airport. Since the valley is completely surrounded by high mountains, planes can only land here in good visibility and this means flights to and from Skardu are never guaranteed. The planes do fly more often than not, but cancellations can and do occur and in these circumstances we will travel by road. If we did not do this groups would risk being stranded in Islamabad and you should beware of companies that say they will only fly to Skardu as this may mean you have no possibility of trekking. See our ‘Important Note’ about travel on the Karakoram Highway for more details.

Health & Vaccinations

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you specific require any vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella), along with hepatitis A and typhoid. Malarial prophylaxis is discretionary for this trip. Malaria exists in the area around Islamabad. However, incidences of urban transmission of malaria are extremely low. In Skardu and in the mountains there is no malaria risk. A certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required if travelling from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission and for travellers having transmitted for more than 12 hrs through an airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission. On holidays to more remote areas you should also have a dentist check up. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

INSURANCE

We highly recommend that you have adequate travel insurance for your trip with Trango Adventure Pakistan. We recognise the complexity and variety of choice in the insurance market and know that many of you either have your own preferred insurer or have annual multi trip cover in place already. If this is the case, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your Adventure itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken.

Trango Adventure do not provide any advice on travel insurance, although it is Highly recommended  that you have travel insurance which covers the activities which you are likely to be undertaking on your holiday.

Altitude.

This holiday involves going to very high altitude. During the course of your trip you will be spending at least one night above 4000 metres and/or trekking to 5000 metres or above. This is not something that you should worry about; the human body is quite capable of adapting to a very wide range of altitudes, but it is important that we follow some simple rules in order to acclimatize successfully. Before coming on this holiday you should read the advice on trekking at high altitude on our website which can be viewed via the link below. Unless you have previous experience of trekking above 4,000 metres you should consult one of our trekking experts before embarking on this holiday.

Climate

From mid June to August, we can expect to encounter temperatures as high as 30°C at Skardu and 25°C at Hushe and Askole. In June and early July there will be a good covering of snow on the slopes leading to and from the Gondoro la and we may also encounter snow on the upper part of the Baltoro. Above 4000 metres snow can fall at any time of the year. At any time of the season the night-time temperature above 4000 metres are likely to drop to freezing or below and at our highest camps may reach minus 10 or 15°C. The weather is generally good throughout the summer season, with clear skies and little rain or snow. However, weather in mountainous areas is difficult to predict, and short-lived storms can occur at any time of the year.
