The smell of coffee wakes me up before the sun has risen. Crawl outside of a sleeping bag. Pack up camp. Climb into the night. Kiss my girlfriend and thank her for a great day. Repeat.

  • Higher Ground Expedition, Treks and Tours is a dream that has been many years in the making. I have traveled with Ghafoor on expeditions to explore my greatest passion and fulfill my own dreams. I wanted to test my physical limits in some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. But Ghafoor opened my eyes to a new culture and provided a truly incredible experience paired with some of the most amazing views on Earth. If you travel with Ghafoor and Higher ground, you can expect all your needs to be met but more importantly a life changing experience. I highly recommend Ghafoor and his services!

  • "On five expeditions to the high mountains of Pakistan, I have always been impressed by how kind, generous and hard-working the people of Pakistan's mountain regions are. Of all the great people that have helped me on my expeditions, Ghafoor Abdul is by far my favorite, and I highly recommend working with him. He is a great expedition cook and guide, he is super hard working, he knows the mountains of Pakistan super well, and he knows the industry of expedition support very well... but more important than all that, he is an extremely friendly person, who is easy-going and fun to spend time with."  -Colin Haley

  • I first met Ghafoor in 2002. It was the summer after 9/11, tensions were high in Kashmir, and my climbing partner Brian and I were quite alone in the Trango Valley. Although he spoke hardly any english at the time, Brian and I could tell quickly that Ghafoor was kind, honest, and hardworking. After lots of forced tent time due to poor weather we began to teach Ghafoor some basic english, and it became increasingly clear that Ghafoor was a special person, with a giant heart. 

    Now 15 years later, I’ve been on seven Expeditions to Pakistan with Ghafoor, and we’ve spent over a year of our lives together at various basecamps throughout the Karakoram. Ghafoor has been a part of many cutting edge climbs in the Pakistan. Helping to keep climbers healthy and strong in the build up to the climb He’s even spent time with me and my family in the States. I feel honored to count him among my closest friends, and I’m so proud that he’s now able to open his own Tour company in northern Pakistan. 

    Ghafoor understands what's important to trekkers and climbers. He will be honest and forthcoming in his business dealings, and cater the trip to fit your budget and desires. Please feel free to contact via my email at whartonj1979@gamil.com for a reference, to if I can help you plan your Pakistan trip in any way.
