alone in Afghanistan
About the book Why Noshaq
Located on the Afghan-Pakistani border, Noshaq (7492 m) has a permanent place in the history of Polish mountaineering. It was this summit that Andrzej Zawada and Tadeusz Piotrowski conquered first in the winter of 1973, thus opening the era of winter Himalayanism.
Unfortunately, since the late 1970s, Afghanistan has become inaccessible to mountaineers because of the armed conflict that continues to this day. Only a few mountaineers have been visiting it since that time. One of them is Łukasz Kocewiak, who in 2018 as part of a one-man trip made a solo ascent to Noshaq.
In the publication we will read about how this unusual expedition went, whether this region can be considered safe and what was special about that climbing season at Noshaq.
