PAKISTAN TREKS SUMMER 2013
We are organising three treks to Pakistan over the summer: in July Snow Lake and Hispar La; in August K2 Base Camp & Gondogoro La and in late August K2 Base Camp & Concordia.
The Mountain Company groups have visited Pakistan every year since 2004 and over this time we have built up unrivalled experience in operating in this amazing country.
So far we have received alot of interest for these departures, please get in touch soon if you would like to join one of these groups.

GHT TREKS IN BHUTAN
In Autumn 2013 we have two GHT treks in Bhutan, in late September Lunana Snowman
and then in late October we are excited to organise Rodung La with Merak and Sakten
for the first time. Rodung La trek will be led by our Bhutan specialist Almas Khan
who also led our 2012 Snowman trek.
The Bhutanese government opened up Merak and Sakten in 2010 and so far very few trekking groups have visited this remote region in far eastern Bhutan. The Rodung La trail can be seen as an extension of Snowman trek and by doing both of these treks connects the country along GHT from west of the country near Paro to east in Trashi Yangtse.
GHT TREKS IN NEPAL
Kanchenjunga to Makalu is a 36 day trek following the first section of GHT starting in the east of Nepal and travelling through a remote region on the border with Tibet. For those who do not have the time to complete this full traverse to Makalu BC we have a shorter trek at 24 days exiting directly to Tumlingtar airstrip

CULTURAL TOURS IN NEPAL AND BHUTAN
Over the last two years we have been expanding our Cultural Tours program in Nepal and Bhutan. These trips are proving very popular for people who would like visit these countries while staying in hotels on a tour. You have the choice to either join one of our fixed date group departures or we can tailor a bespoke tour for you based on your time and budget available.
To be in a position to recommend hotels to our guests I have personally inspected over forty properties throughout Nepal in the main sightseeing places of Kathmandu, Chitwan, Bandipur, Lumbini and Pokhara. So far we have received very positive feedback from our tour groups who have appreciated our first-hand knowledge and experience of the hotels and main points of interest in these places.
