K2 Base Camp Trek is one of the greatest treks in the world
unbeatable in terms of close-up mountain views and proximity to many of the world’s highest peaks. However this is a tough but rewarding trek, with many days being spent on the rugged, tumbled glacier as you head up to ‘Concordia’ where the Baltoro and the Godwin-Austen glaciers converge in a beauty and simplicity of ice and rock.
The mighty mountain stands high above all others in the rugged Karakorum range of the Himalaya’s. We have added in additional acclimatization giving you the best chance of success.We have a great team of trusted staff on the ground in Pakistan.
The journey into K2 base camp is truly astounding, you will discover amazing cultural diversity, and real adventure. This trek is achievable for most fit trekkers and rated as one of the best treks in the world.
Our route through the Concordia up the Baltoro Glacier starts in Islamabad with flight into Skardu, then the long strennous trek up past Broad Peak to K2 Base Camp where we spend a night, allowing time to absorb the unique atmosphere and environment surrounding this unforgettable mountain. Our return trek takes us the same route unless we try little harder route to go over the spectacular Gondogoro La, a dramatic high col that affords further stunning views of the Gasherbrum peaks. We purposefully cross this pass in the early hours of the morning so, given good weather, we are rewarded with tremendous golden sunshine in one of the most dramatic places on earth.
Your K2 Base Camp Trek experience will arguably be the most spectacular trek you will ever undertake, with multiple views of the world highest and most difficult mountain.
