We are about to leave Skardu for the “end of the road” at Askole. There we will hire somewhere over 150 or more Balti porters to carry our gear to K2 Base Camp – and this is just part of the overall load – one way!
But first we take these souped up Land Cruisers and Jeeps over a road that would be named a trail anywhere else in the world following parts of the Ingus River.
Some of the FJs have been in use for over 30 years. They are “toughened” with heavy duty coils, shocks, suspension and special air filters.
I think I need to drop by their shop and see if they can upgrade me!!
