Trekking Tajikistan: Pamir Mountain Lakes

Dates: 1st - 17th September 2016
Attention: Date Change
Cost: £1800
Fully Booked
Of all the Great Ranges on the Asian continent, the Pamir Mountains are probably the least known and the least visited of them all. Along the way we will stay in the homes of the Pamiri natives, camp near centuries old caravanserais and explore the shores of shimmering blue alpine lakes. To complete the traverse the team will scale a mountain pass that’s taller than Mont Blanc. Be prepared to be spoiled for life!

Ski Iraq – Reccy Trip

Dates: 28th January - 6th February 2017
Cost: US$2450
Guaranteed Departure
As far as we are aware, this will be the first ever commercial ski trip to Iraq. A country more associated with deserts has some great mountainous terrain in the northern semi-autonomous Kurdistan region which we will explore with a qualified international ski guide. Using the experience the Untamed Borders team has of guiding and climbing in Iraq, we have identified areas that offer some great ski touring terrain.

The Road to Shandur

We spend the last few days in the Hunza valley which is thought to be the inspiration for Shangri La in James Hilton's classic novel Lost Horizon.
