Description

Towering at 28,251 feet above sea level, the legendary K2 is the second highest mountain in the world. It is located in the north-western Karakoram Mountain Range on the Pakistan—China border between Baltistan in Gilgit-Baltistan and the Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County of Xinjiang, China. K2 is known by many names: the Savage Mountain, Mount Godwin-Austen, Chhogori, Qogir. A notoriously difficult mountain to climb, it has the second-highest fatality rate among the eight-thousanders. Extreme weather conditions and avalanches make a trek to K2 impossible during the winter. However, summers bring in a huge influx of casual adventurers and hardcore mountaineers from both Pakistan and abroad. The trek to K2 is a strenuous, adrenaline-filled journey of around 3 weeks. It’s not for the faint-hearted. The journey commences from Islamabad; people reach either via plane from Islamabad to Skardu or by road i.e. the Karakoram Highway. The official starting point, however, is Askole— the last town before the Karakoram ranges— located in Shigar Valley, Gilgit–Baltistan.
