Overview

The Astore Markhor, with its majestic horns, is a prized trophy for hunters from all around the world. The hunt may involve steep climbs, long hikes, and harsh mountain conditions. The season of Markhor hunting typically runs from October to April when they descend to lower areas. Due to the Markhor's habitat, long-range shooting is often necessary. Hunters need to be expert marksmen to ensure a clean and humane kill. Necessary hunting permits are needed in advance to hunt Astore Markhor. Hunting will also involve interaction with local communities. The breathtaking beauty of the Karakoram, Himalayas and the Markhor themselves can be captured through photography.
