nzboardlife 03-08-2010 06:26 PM

its a cheap trip too, for the two months i was there i averaged about NZ$35 a day including food hotel lift tickets etc. i think that works out at about US$25.

Holy freaking Jesus, really?! Can you post what hotels, car rental company, restuarants, ski resorts (if that's what it was), you used?


Looks like a grand 'ole time.:thumbsup:

Its on the kashmir/pakistan border which is a war zone. There is no such thing as car rentals, or ski resorts. restuarants and hotels are what the town is basically made up of as it is a tourist spot for indians in the summer. You just show up and get prices from all the places and divide what they ask for by 2, i was splitting NZ$25 a night for three bed room but you can stay at proper upmarket places for US$100 if you are so inclined. Its one gondola that goes from 2600 meters up to 4000 meters (8500 to 13000 feet) that gives you access to more terrain then you will ever need, but its all unpatrolled (except one bowl) so you need avalanche training and experience as it is one huge as shit mountain range.
