Why the Ultimate K2 Trek?

 

This is considered to be one of the world’s great treks with breathtaking scenery, unsurpassed anywhere else in the high mountains. This is a challenging trek to Concordia and K2 Base Camp followed by crossing the technical Gondogoro La pass (5,625m).

 

The trekking route is lined with rugged mountains all the way from Askole, the last village in the Braldu gorge, to Concordia. On our walk up the Baltoro glacier we will see the Trango Towers (6,363m), Masherbrum (7,821m), Muztagh Tower (7,283m), Gasherbrum IV (7,925m), K2 (8,611m), Broad Peak (8,051m) and Chogolisa (7,668m) among many others. Concordia has been described as the “Throne Room of the Mountain Gods” for its unique 360˚ panorama of 7,000m mountains and impressive views of K2.

 

After some time exploring K2 and Broad Peak Base Camps, we start the challenging trek out over the Gondogoro La and descend down the beautiful Hushe valley to complete a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
