    The officer above has folded his cuffs even in below freezing point temperature. He really is trained for mountaineering :)

    it is not a very difficult climb for professionals but still need training for amateurs to attempt this. well regardless your ability to climb it or not, this is a must visit place.

    regards!

    Can someone explain why the Pakistani soldier on te far right has what appears to be an armadillo patch/emblem? What is the significance of that? I do know that armadillo have a leathery hard shell/armor...

    P.S I'm not exactly sure if it is an armadillo but it certainly appears to be one.


    Maybe the Aussies could have arrived with a koala bear emblem on their sleeve.

    Australian guy looks like a contractor to me does not look military his standing stance, and his cloths all look like civilian contractor

    Also its not a good idea to help train , soldiers of a nation that actively participates against muslim countries

    International missions should be conducted only at neutral zones not , critical flash points

    Specially since we do not have any alliance what so ever with Australia they have routinely sideded with NATO

    when we were young we used to see trailer after trailer of mainly western tourists heading north,in summer months..But thanks to bad international economy,budget airlines and bad publicity along with bad security situation, tourism in Pakistan has suffered.
    I am not a big fan of sending too many tourists up there is those pristine areas..But good to see mountaineers back..

    It's not below freezing, no training can protect you from cold. death occures with in minutes in sub zero climates with the kind of clothing everyone is wearing.

    Middle of summer base camp at 3800m probably above zero when the pic was taken, nice sunny day could even be warm.
