PIA announces Air Safari service from 12th
The flight will operate once a week and the one-way fare is set at Rs25,000. The service is named after Ali Sadpara, a noted mountaineer, who lost his life in a bid to conquer K2 in winter.
The flight will take off from Islamabad and land in Skardu. It will fly over the mighty K2, Nanga Parbat, Gaherbrum peaks, Deosai plains and Saiful Maluk lake.
K2 and Nanga Parbat are Pakistan’s highest mountains and are popular among mountaineers. K2 is the world’s second-highest mountain at 8,611 meters above sea level.
