It's been an awesome 56-day trip. From hitchhiking on tractors and psychedelic trucks to driving over extremely narrow mountain roads built on a cliff 1,500 meters high, soldiers who voluntarily give you their AK-47 for taking a photo, the most striking landscape and the fact that you can camp in the middle of a paradise completely by yourself. Pakistan is the adventure of your lifetime.

I just wanted to thank all the Pakistani people who took part in my journey. The mountains are awesome but, in the end, the people are who make your trip. I've never seen such level of hospitality, and I've been to other countries which are worldwide famous for that but, the truth is that Pakistan brings it to the next level.

Thank you, ALL and my most sincere apologies to all those people who, for some reason, couldn't meet up.

I will come back. 100% guaranteed. Next summer


P.S. This was the last picture I am sharing of Pakistan, which also belongs to the last minute I spent there. This his photo was taken in Sost, the last village before the Chinese border .

Polish skier to make world record by becoming the first one to ever successfully ski down from K2.

29-year-old Polish Andrzej Bargiel is about to climb 8,611 m K2, considered one of the most lethal peaks on planet and then attempt to become the first person ever to ski down it. K2 has only been successfully conquered about 300 times, as compared Mt Everest - taller by about 800 feet than K2 - has been climbed more than 5,500 times. But with around 77 deaths by climbers, K2 is one of the most dangerous mountains in the world and claims roughly one life for every four attempts.
According to The Times, Bargiel said: “Previous attempts prove that the descent is possible, provided you had carried out excellent preparation, were at the peak of sporting fitness and had experience of skiing at such high altitudes and nd of course you had to have a bit of luck with the weather and snow quality.” He added: “A quick descent on skis could be seen as an even more difficult step on my Himalayan and skiing career. But it would also be a feat recorded in the history of Himalayan mountaineering and skiing.”
In 2001, Hans Kammerlander - an Italian mountaineer - attempted the descent on skis but abandoned his bid after darkness set in and a Korean climber fell and died.

Palestineans performed the Friday prayers on the streets of occupied Jerusalem.

For the first time since 1969 Masjid Al Aqsa in Palestine was closed on Friday and there was no Jummah salah and no Adhan from the minarets of Al Aqsa. This is the third most holiest site in Islam yet it's under the occupation and control of the Zionists.
When Majid Al Aqsa was under the occupation of the crusaders Salahuddin Al Ayyubi once had said: "How can I smile and how can food and water taste good to me when Masjid Al Aqsa is in the hands of the Crusaders".
This is something you will never see or hear on your lamestream media.
