This is our most popular expedition package. It is similar to our Inclusive Expedition Package and includes all services except wages, food, equipment & insurance for your porters & liaison officer. This option helps you save money by directly paying your porters for which we will give you all the necessary assistance.

Please note, the wages of your porters (which keep fluctuating) are the
most expensive part of your expedition. Despite your meticulous calculation, it is extremely difficult for you & us to calculate the exact weight of your expedition prior to your arrival in Pakistan which will make it difficult for us to calculate the exact number of porters. So if we quote you for our package including porters, we'll have to calculate at a higher rate to absorb the unforeseen costs in lieu of varying numbers of porters & their fluctuating wages which will, obviously, increase your expedition's budget. So we suggest you pay your porters directly for which we'll provide you every possible assistance for hiring them, covering their insurance & providing them food & personal equipment. Our guides, cooks & sardar will also give you every assistance for handling your porters without any problems.

Based on a mutually agreed itinerary, services and terms under this option, weíll provide you a Most Economical Expedition Package which will include all the following services.
