Would love to do Siachen Base Camp...wonder if they will let us Foreigners go there
For Indians also,
It is still not clear if this will start when & how.
No rules & regulations are in place.
As this is border area, it is difficult for Non Indians to go there.
However, If some one is in Media / Press / Influential Contact with politicians, then only possible.
BBC & other News Channels have made many Border related Documentaries.

ILP for Indians : Ladakh Inner Line Permit

PAP for Foreigners :

Going to Neverland
I dont think acclimatization would be an issue since SBC is situated at 12000 ft only unless you are allowed to camp at Kumar post. Most probably it would be a day trip without any night stay at SBC.

Kumar Post most probably involves no trekking or very limited trekking. Once can drive there may be accompanied by a Jawan from SBC who will give the visitors a tour of SBC and beyond. There is an Amarnath kind of shivlings thereabout. As per the jawans there, this shivlinga may even be bigger than the Amarnath one. SBC is about 50-55 kms from Panamik. Night can be spent either at Panamik or Sumur or even Hunder. The entire section is flat with good roads.

Correction: Kumar Post is a 5 day trek. Anyways normal tourist will not venture there.
