The Karakorum Explorers Company and their Tours
From Cheryl Penna on behalf of group of 10 who went to Swat and Hunza
Trek to K-2 base camp on a well
organized and professional,
Nasir, our guide proved to be a very knowledgeable and interesting person. Ian from
I am the only person at least on the comments book to have made two
trips with Karakorum Explorers in less than one year. Needless to say how much I
appreciate the professionalism, friendship and hospitality when showing us wonderful
Valerie Therond from France.
I found our Guide, Arman Ali, helpful, courteous and friendly through
out our trek. Nothing was too much of a problem and he was invaluable in obtaining the
necessary groups of porters.
Arman's command of English as well as a number of local languages and
dialects proved useful in helping us to communicate with local village folk. As regards
Arman's guiding skills, I found him to have a steady and consistent pace with concern for
those some way behind. He was especially concerned with one member of our party who was
very ill and comforted him on difficult terrain.
Overall I would recommend Arman as a guide for further parties without
