“My climbing and trekking experiences span five decades and encompass all seven continents. I have used Shipton Tours three times and they are, far and away, the best outfitter I have ever dealt with. Their attention to detail and their staff are both outstanding.
I just returned from a five week trek/climbing trip to the Biafo Glacier. Everything about the service provided by Shipton Tours was excellent.
“As a professional climber, based in Umhausen / Ötztal/Austria I want to recommend Shipton Tours, Treks and Expeditions as a partner to explore Pakistan, especially the Karakorum Mountains. I´m working together with the team since 2006. Furthermore I´m happy, that I led the first official expedition of Shipton Tours, Treks and Expedition ever, to Shipton Spire / Trango Valley in summer 2006.
“Thank you very much for supporting our Expedition to the great Trango. Every expedition need a strong Partner (Agency)!Thanks to Zahir, our very good cook. Thanks to Habib.
Thanks to Muhammad Ali our great Guide. Thanks to Iqbal to organization all things. Thanks to Rasool for their support in Skardu.

They have the basics down: travel logistics, lodging, transfers, food, security, etc. They were total professionals and adaptable when it came to servicing.
