|We recommend the best Partner for Trekking and Expedition in the Karakorum the Agency Shipton Treks and Expedition.S.T& Expedition is a self-help project under the auspices of the charitable, non-government, non-profit-making organization. "Himalaya-Karakorum-Hilfe e.V.". It was founded in order to let the inhabitants of Baltistan - also known as "Little Tibet", Situated in the heart of the Karakoram - participate in the profits from tourism. The agency helps locals to find employment and earn a livelihood. This is the only chance they have to improve their situation by their own efforts and to secure their subsistence in the long term.

|Shipton Treks was the ideal guide service for our needs. They have an incredibly knowledgeable staff, speaking both English and German, with key people located in all of the right areas in Pakistan. They have the basics down: travel logistics, lodging, transfers, food, security, etc. But they were total professionals and adaptable when it came to servicing or production needs. We went to Pakistan to film a TV show in the mountains and Shipton accommodated all of our unusual requests: ever changing schedules, duplicate generators for power, transport of fragile equipment, etc. In summary the entire team at Shipton was great and the next time I make a trip to Pakistan I know who to call.
|As a professional climber, based in Umhausen / Ötztal/Austria I want to recommend Shipton Tours, Treks and Expeditions as a partner to explore Pakistan, especially the Karakorum Mountains.
I´m working together with the team since 2006. Furthermore I´m happy, that I led the first official expedition of Shipton Tours, Treks and Expedition ever, to Shipton Spire / Trango Valley in summer 2006.
My recent expedition, where I successfully climbed Kunyang Chhish East (7400m) via the Southwestface to claim the historic first ascent of the peak, was again accompanied by Shipton Tours, Treks and Expeditions without any
big problems and closed as usual.
