Important Notes

Why should you register now?
  1. Domestic Flights: We might not be able to get you on the domestic flight to Skardu if you do not pay your deposit on time. Domestic flight seats are sold very fast way ahead of time because there are only two flights to Skardu during peak season. This is a very serious concern. Among other things, the deposit is used to book domestic flights for you in advance.
  2. Price changes: The given prices for the treks are early bird discount offers and are subject to change. There will be an increase in prices every month after January. Service providers including (but not limited) to hotels increase prices in peak-season. Early reservations cost less than peak-season. Our trekking holiday prices will not change once you have paid the deposit so the price when you book is the price you will pay. Register yourselves early to avoid increase in holiday prices.
Pay less deposit: Given below is our deposit schedule for 2021 departures.
  • April to September 2021 (deposit: USD 290)
  • October to December 2021 (deposit: USD 350)
  • January to April 2022 (deposit: USD 390)
Note: The same months above apply to 2022 departures.

Price discrimination

We strongly believe that international guests should not pay more than locals. The reason for what may seem to be price discrimination is purely because of the additional and necessary services included as you will find under holiday information.
