Jan Bakker was born in the Netherlands but currently lives in Lebanon. He has led pioneering mountain expeditions in Tajikistan, the Afghan Wakhan Corridor and Iraqi Kurdistan and has written articles about his adventures for various magazines.
Born in France, Christine Oriol travelled in Central Asia before adopting Tajikistan as her second home. Settling in the Fann Mountains, she enjoyed exploring both the surrounding mountains and the unmarked trails of the Pamirs. She now trains young local women with the non-profit organization Women Rockin' Pamirs.
