Afghanistan Trekking Scholarship





Due to an knee injury one of our attendees on the Short Walk Expedition to Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor has had to pull out. He has very graciously offered his place ($10,000, already paid up) for a member of this mailing list. It will be the journey of a lifetime.

You will join a team of six people. The Short Walk Trekking Scholarship covers all local transport, accommodation, food, trekking permits and support staff for the three-week expedition. It excludes international flights into Dushanbe (our starting point), insurance, alcohol and visas. We can advise on obtaining visas for Tajikistan & Afghanistan in a few days.

To be eligible you'll need to be signed up to the Studio D mailing list, be fit enough to undertake two weeks high altitude trekking, and be comfortable with being in relatively uncomfortable situations. We are traveling to a very remote, and relatively low risk part of Afghanistan. 

You'll need a four season sleeping bag and decent hiking boots. The rest of the equipment is supplied by Studio D.

Apply here.

We'll make a decision on the suitable applicant by June 1st.

Best of luck,
