~ Kelly Cordes

Want to go to the Trango tower??

Want to climb Trango tower?? If yes then you really need to have great skills for climbing because of its all vertical limit,

Trango tower is the Pakistans most expensive expedition ever

So the best time to go for these towers is somewhere between June to September because its the most easiest time to go for summits, it’s allowed to camp anywhere on these towers, porters are available easily and their payment can be till 100$ each , and the most important thing you should have a proper gear and everything related to a climb …. moreover you can contact Pakistani tourism companies

My thoughts on Trango towers:-

Ughh finally my favorite part 

So I have been into Trango tower since the first time I saw it in 2007, it was a full moon day and the light of that moon on Trango tower got me shook for lyf

and the mighty Trango tower became my favorite mountains of them all the structure of these mountains are the best things about them and the snow on them add color to them

If you ever get a chance I would really suggest you to go for their base camp
