Seven years ago after I traveled to K2 and saw the environmental effects of large-scale expeditions on the fragile mountain environment I wanted to make a difference. I founded my own mountain guiding company: Unnamed Unclimbed Expeditions. The idea is to introduce people who have a passion for alpine activities to the mountain grandeur of the Himalayas, Karakoram and Hindukush mountains in Pakistan.
You can access these mountains in one of two ways. First, you can sign up with one of the many 'adventure outfitters' listed in the back of Outside/Rock and Ice/Climbing, or other popular magazines. Someone from the West coast will collect $5000 from you, keep $3000 and send $2000 to the person in Islamabad, Pakistan who has never seen a Himalayan peak. That person will keep $1500 and give $500 to a mountain guide. The mountain guide will keep another $300 and will distribute $200 between 10 porters. So the at the end of the day, the local Baltis/Hunzakuts who cook for you, carry all your gear, and provide entertainment through their cheerful songs at night will only get $20.
Our website is a FREE resource to help you plan your expeditions by connecting you with the locals who will make your expedition possible.
