Malang, Afiat Khan, Gurg Ali and Amruddin are all originating from the Wakhan valley. They already possess solid mountaineering skills, having participated in various training courses in Afghanistan and in Italy. Their instruction was completed with a technical course organized in the Alps in the spring of 2009.
The « Afghans to the top » project came to existence from the encounter of these four Afghan mountaineers and three young Frenchmen members of La Guilde: Louis Meunier, who is coordinating the project, has been living in Afghanistan since 2002; Nicolas Fasquelle, impassioned by mountaineering, spent 2 years in Afghanistan; and Jérôme Veyret, winner of the Bourses de l'Aventure award in 2001 for participating in the first crossing the North Caucasus chain.
