Description

A walk towards the heart of the Karakoram. K2 trek is one of the most famous and most attempted treks in the world. Strenuous and demanding trek under the shadows of sky kissing peaks with breathtaking views of Karakoram. It starts from Skardu on the wily jeep, after crossing the lush green fertile Shigar, here comes the Askole, The last human settlement before the wilderness. From Askole, trek on barren, dry soil & rocks till Paiju then approximately 65 km walk on Baltoro glacier till Concordia. A straightforward uphill walk on a white hard glacier, Vigne till Ali camp and then GGLA base camp. Then a determined tricky walk with the help of fixed ropes in the darkness on the glacier to cross the Challenging and technical mighty giant of ice, GGL (5650 m), one of the highest pastures in the world. The top of this pass offers the most awesome mountain panoramas anywhere in the world, with all the 8000 + m giants of Karakorum in Pakistan. The Ghondoghoro La, though popular with trekkers, involves Class 4 climbing. The northeast side has up to 50-degree snow slopes with avalanche danger requiring fixed ropes.
