Pakistan Maintains Lower Peak Fees for 2010
The government of Pakistan has announced that its bargain rates on mountaineering fees will be maintained for the 2010 climbing season. Under the discount plan, which has been in place for the past several years in an effort to lure climbers to the troubled country, there is no fee for peaks up to 6,500 meters and a sliding scale for higher peaks, topping out at $6,000 for a team of seven on K2. The fee for peaks in the Chitral, Gilgit, and Ghizer districts, other than popular Spantik, is even lower—just 20 percent of the 2010 reduced rates.
The 2010 fees for teams of up to seven climbers are:
• K2: $6,000 , plus $1,000 per additional climber
• 8,001m to 8,500m: $4,500 plus $750 per additional climber
• 7,501m to 8,000m: $2,000 plus $250 per additional climber
• 7,001m to 7,500m: $1,250 plus $150 per additional climber
• 6,501m to 7,000m: $750 plus $100 per additional climber
