K2 base camp trek ( 8611m, the 2nd highest mountain)
One of the world most famous trekking route is the K2 base camp, a challenging and demanding but rewarding, delightful and remarkable as well. Skardu the bewitching capital of Baltistan region is the starting point for mighty K-2. We cross a beautiful lush green fertile and fruit laden Shigar valley and drive as far as Askoli, the last inhabitant before falling into the throne of mountains.
Walking on the unpredictable but charismatic and enchanting Baltoro Glacier, we glimpse several famous and beautiful mountains on the way towards K2. Finally we arrive at Concordia, the junction of Baltoro and Godwin Austin Glaciers with several other tributaries and a place serving as the base for the four giants of Karakurums, i.e. Gasherbrum II ( 8035m ), Broad Peak ( 8047m ) and Hidden Peak or Gasherbrum I ( 8068m ) dominated by the king of the mountains, K-2 ( 8611m ).
