Trip Introduction: -

Mount K2 8611 M is the second highest peak in the world and highest peak in Pakistan. Mount k2 is also known as CHOGORI which is Balti language means the king of mountains. K2 has variously been described as "awesome", " Killer" and "Savage" Mountain. This is because of massiveness of its size and unsuccessful attempts made on it by various expedition parties. K2 is rocky mountain up to 6000-M, beyond which it becomes an ocean of snow. K2, 8611-M is situated on the Pakistan China border in the mighty Karakorams. The traditional rout to its base camp goes from Skardu Baltistan which is linked with Islamabad by Karakoram Highway as well as by air. From Skardu the rout goes via Shigar-Dassu-Askole upto Concordia over the Baltoro Glacier.
