After three days in Islamabad we were lucky to get a good weather for flight. Pakistan’s Northern area airports became open and a Polish expedition team (Broad peak expedition) flew with us in same aircraft to Skardu.
Chief-minister of Northern areas (Gilgit-Baltistan) of Pakistan Mr. Mehdi Shah met us at the airport and was very kind to share a photo. GII Winter expeditions (thanks to Simone) have become very popular in Karakorum and its making a good support for the local economy.
Simone, Cory and I (Denis) together with cook Didar and guide Hassan will prepare the expedition luggage. It’s necessary to divide out the equipment, part for acclimatization step near the village.
