One of my favorites, this photo was taken in early September 1990 while going up from Harchin to Phargam Pass in Chitral. Notice the man's footgear: it is nothing but old pieces of cloth wrapped around and tied with thongs.

This is Ameer of Phargam village. He was a sirdar porter during my Buni Zom (Main) Expedition in 2002. I don't know if he is still alive, but he was a very nice and energetic man!
