The Asiatic ibex is probably the most abundant Caprinae in Pakistan ( Schaller, 1977). It is restricted to the relatively dry mountains of the inner Himalaya, Karakoram and Hindu Kush between 3200 to around 5000 m. It inhabits most of the higher mountain ranges across all of the Gilgit an Baltistan districts, and the northern Kashmir, it exists in the inner mountain range and inhabits the southern slopes of the main Himalayan chain ( Roberts, 1977, Schaller, 1977, Qayyum, 1985). Outside this distribution area there is an unconfirmed report of a totally isolated population in the Koh Safed along the Pak Afghan borders. If animals still exist there, it would represent the southernmost limit of the species (Roberts, 1977).

Government of Pakistan issues special permits in coordination with WWF each year for certain areas and for certain old age animals.
