Though we never know when our day will come and we will depart from this temporary world but we as a human always make long plans, don’t we?
Alhamdolillah, I did the treks which I had planned for 2016 and even managed to do trips which were not in plans e.g. upper Dir Kohistan trip. Following are the upcoming planned trips for 2017 (the links lead to event pages on Facebook where you can find all the relevant details): Swat Exploration Trip Trek to Explorer’s Paradise – Chitta Katha Lake Karomber Lake, Broghil Valley, Entry via Chillinji Pass and Exit via Darkot Pass
Alhamdolillah, I once again did all the major treks I had planned for year 2017 (Chillinji pass – Karomber lake – Darkot pass loop, Upper Swat trip, Astore-Deosai-Skardu-Shigar-Khaplu trip Chitta Katha lake trip).
Though I have already cancelled my Lukpe La trekking trip for year 2018 but I am organizing following public trips which you are welcome join: For year 2019 I have planned following trips so far: Trip to Kumrat valley, Jahaz Banda meadows and Katora lake Trip to Kutwal lake, Haramosh valley Kandia Pass Trek (connecting Swat with Kandia in Kohistan) August and September plans are still under consideration

Here is what I usually do to keep the expenses low:
1- Travel with 2-3 friends which helps to divide the costs of fuel, room rents, jeeps etc.
2- Stay in budget hotels
3- Use public transport when solo
