This expedition would not have been so successful without the help of our Pakistani support team.
Karim Hayat from Mountain Expert Pakistan (www.mountainsexpert.com.pk) organised a fantastic support team. Musa Karim our guide coordinated professionally the journey to the basecamp and took care of all our needs at the basecamp. Arif and Shams helped us as high-porters and carried numberous loads up to 5100m camp. During our summit attempt they waited in 5700m camp ready to support us after coming back down in case there was an emergency. And last but most importantly Rahamed and Egaz, cook and assistant cook, who put every effort into creating various superb meals and even cake (!) in the basecamp.
A big thank you to all of them for their excellent service and belief in our expedition.
