IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR ME?

  • It doesn't matter whether you're an experienced traveller or this is your first time away

  • All we're looking for a people who are easy going, up for an adventure, and most importantly a good laugh and a good time! 

  • If you've seen the Morocco trip, you'll know what the vibe is going to be. We don't take ourselves too seriously, everyone just wants to have the most fun as possible.

  • This is an expedition trip and is new to our range this year. Despite rigorous planning and research, new itineraries can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a welcome surprise, but every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.

  • Part of travelling with Intrepid means respecting local cultures and sensibilities. That way you get the most out of your interactions with local people and environments. Pakistan is a conservative country and travellers of all genders are advised to cover up when in public.

  • This trip visits places as high as 5200 metres above sea level and includes one or more overnight stays over 3200 metres (11500 ft) where there is a genuine risk of being affected by Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If left untreated AMS can be life-threatening. While the vast majority will only feel discomfort, it is not uncommon for a small number of people to need extra care which will be provided by our leaders and local staff. All our trips that spend time at high altitude follow our standard altitude safety measures. A number of medical conditions and medications can also reduce your body's ability to acclimatise, and thus will affect your performance at altitude and make you more susceptible to AMS. If you are worried about any pre-existing condition (e.g. heart problems), or unsure of your physical ability, you must seek medical advice prior to booking. You may also wish to discuss medication such as Diamox that may help aid acclimatisation. Read more about AMS here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/altitude-sickness

  • The diversity of the seasons here makes for incredible scenery, but the weather in this region can be unpredictable. It’s best to wear layers at all times of the year in case conditions change during the day. At night the temperature can really drop, so bring your warm clothes. Even in the warmer months the temperature can be low in the mountains.

  • This trip includes some long travel days spent in a private vehicle with your group. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.

  • Passport scans are required at the time of booking for visa invitation letters.

  • As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, solo travellers will share a room with other travellers of the same gender (or pay an additional single room supplement). This trip is a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded people, so embrace it while you can!
