Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply for a visa?

Please visit https://visa.nadra.gov.pk for complete information.

What are the necessary items I need to carry with me?

Jeans, long and short-sleeved T-shirts, riding shoes or boots, gloves. For summer weather, some long sleeve white T-Shirts are a great idea. Mornings and evenings can be brisk. Some windbreaker/gear is easy and great to have. Some cash for personal expenses like shopping, laundry, snacks, etc. We can change currencies for you, please make sure to let us know beforehand.

Some common items include:
– Sunglasses
– Camera
– Base layers are must-have for our winter tours
– Windbreaker/gear as needed per tour/season
– Sense of adventure
– SPF 50 Sun Block

How long in advance do I need to book?

The Visa process sometimes takes up to 2 months for Pakistan so we suggest getting your visa as soon as possible. If you have a visa, you need to book a tour with us at least a month in advance so we can prepare properly for you.

What is the recommended arrival date?

We recommend you to arrive two days before the tour begins. We want you to wear off your jet lag, and be fresh for the adventurous journey ahead.

What kind of physical condition do I need to be in?

This answer actually does not vary from tour to tour, as we at ADA hope you are in excellent physical and mental condition anytime you plan on an adventure with us. As with other topics, let’s discuss what shape you’re in and the type of tour you’re planning on to make sure there’s a match. However, our “approval” of your condition does not take the place of a trusted doctor’s evaluation, which is something we strongly encourage you to seek before any tour or rental. Also, we recommend you to arrive two days earlier than tour date to avoid Jet Lag.

Is airfare included in the tour cost / Hotels before and after tour / transportation?

No. Your tour begins in Islamabad the day of the tour. We have found that this is really the best option for you. Arrangements can be made for extra hotel accommodations, upon request. The hotels we use on the first and last day of the tour are usually close to the airport. In most situations and tours, there will be a shuttle to shuttle you to or from the airport. We suggest arriving a couple of days early, and leaving a couple of days after the tour so you have time to rest before and after the tour. We can help you book these for you.
