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.

Following the plan of Simone we hope to get night on slopes of Khosar Kang mount – close to 6000 meters.
