Ghar Parau application deadline moved back 1 month


Active member
The Ghar Parau Foundation has decided to move the deadline for applications for spring 2021 back to 31/3/2021. This is in recognition of current uncertainty regarding travel. Please note also that we have earlier agreed to be more flexible than usual regarding timing and numbers.

We hope this will allow more expeditions to submit an application for an expedition in 2021.
