Kashmir Markhor
in Pakistan

Acknowledged as the most sought after markhor race, Kashmir’s difference lies in the differing configuration of its horns although it closely resembles Astor in many cases. Known also as Pir Punjal, the animal is named after the territory it inhabits. What makes it so unique is the rarity of the animal. 4 permits for each subspecies of markhor are annually granted by the Pakistani government which makes it a total of 12 licenses between 3 subspecies. Optimum Hunting offers you this unique hunting safari with the best guides, proven hunting areas, superb trophy quality.

Hunt Kashmir Markhor in Pakistan


There are daily and direct flights to Islamabad from a number of major European cities. Lufthansa and British Airways are flying to Islamabad directly from Frankfurt and London but both airports can be with difficulties for the ones who travel with guns. Another alternative is to use a connection through Dubai or Doha by flying Emirates. But this airline requires a three day gun notice. Therefore hunters who concludes their hunts earlier than planned may have to spend a few days in Islamabad before they board their flight. When considered all, Turkish airlines seems to be one of the best options for this destination as there are direct flights from Istanbul to Islamabad four times a week.
