The northern side of K2 lies in a remote region of western China. Beginning the journey in Kashgar we travel by road to Xinjiang, and on through spectacular scenery and high passes to Elik. It is here we meet our camels and their care takers. Our trek will take us through Kyrgyz settlements as we cross and re-cross rivers and make our way through gorges and valleys towards K2 Base Camp. This is to a large extent an exploratory trek, participants will need to be flexible as the rivers can force us to make changes in our itinerary.
