Who We Are ?
Karakorum Nature and Discovery Pakistan is a team of highly experienced and qualified professionals who have over the past 15 years contributed to promote the Hindukush-Karakorum-Himalaya mountain region of Northern Pakistan. KNDP offers a wide range of all-inclusive travel services in some of the most majestic and authentic areas on this earth. We also arrange extensions and combination treks and tours with neighbouring countries such as China, Tibet, India, Central Asia and Iran. It is our commitment at KNDP to ensure that we take you to places, ecosystems and people yet unchanged in this rapidly changing world. Our constant ability to discern what is "different, unusual and rewarding" ensures you an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind holiday. The spirit of discovery is the hallmark of our trips, to deepen the traveller’s understanding of these areas, their people, culture and history. We welcome you to explore and enjoy our programs away from the usual routes, to visit historical sites, observe the richness of flora and fauna and meet the people of these ancient cultures. Our small group’s philosophy promotes flexibility, lends itself to a low impact approach to the environment and gives us the opportunity to experience and gain privileged insight into wildlife and communities. Local culture is explored through selected cultural programs along the way as part of your overall holiday itinerary whether it is a jeep safari or a challenging trek to the highest mountains. You will discover both Pakistan’s cultural and natural heritage. Come, and join us in our explorations of the Northern Areas of Pakistan, a journey through the centuries and marvel at both the beauty of the land and the legendary hospitality of its people. Looking forward to welcoming you on our tours! Cordially, Karim Ullah Baig
KNDP and Responsible Tourism

KNDP is committed to Responsible Tourism and Sustainability. It was a commitment formed when the company was founded and today with the worldwide growth of tourism, ever increasing pressure is being placed on our fragile environment and the local communities they sustain. We aim to ensure that our destinations retain their natural character and cultural diversity for future generations. Our mission is to integrate sustainability into travel practices, which means developing socially, economically and ecologically sound trips. Our Responsible Tourism policy commits us to the following principles:
  • Maximising the positive effects of tourism on the host communities. This includes the employment and the training of local staff (guides, porters, drivers, cooks…) using local suppliers and developing sustainable businesses. In doing so, local communities play a fair role in the operations and obtain a fair share of the benefits, and the purchasing of local products and services.
  • Contributing to conservation of natural resources by protecting the environment and minimising pollution.

  • This vision can only be achieved with the support of all. Therefore, our aim is to increase your knowledge of the destination in order to encourage appropriate behaviour and minimise the cultural and environmental impact. To do this, we have created a guide to environment and culture friendly trekking, which provides information on the main environmental and social threats of tourism, particularly trekking trips.
  • Encouraging cultural exchange by including cultural programs as an integral part of our trips.

  • Where possible we engage in partnerships with local on-site organisations and local communities to develop programs that can assist the host communities and contribute towards host community welfare.
