Description

Climbing K2 is an incredible feat which demands tough mental strength combined with incredible physical fitness. Join us as we take you on a guided expedition to the second highest mountain peak in the world!

Where is K2? 

Located on the border between Pakistan and China, K2 (8,611 meters) is the highest peak of the Karakoram Mountain Range. Situated between Baltistan in northern Pakistan, and Xinjiang in China, K2 is regarded as the “mountain of mountains”.

Climbing K2 is a daunting task owing to extreme weather conditions, high altitude and the expertise required. However, you are rewarded by unlimited thrilled and spectacular vistas all along the way!

We’ll begin our 60-day trek from the capital city of Islamabad. We’ll take either one of the two well-documented routes of Abruzzi Spur or the Cesen Route, depending on weather conditions. In spite of their popularity, these routes come with their own set of challenges. We’ll have to negotiate steep slopes, ice masses, and difficult rocky terrain to triumph the summit.

The Abruzzi Spur, first climbed in 1954 by an Italian team is prone to stone fall from the Black Pyramid during extreme weather. The Cesen route avoids the Black Pyramid but can be vulnerable to snow avalanche. It was first climbed by a Basque team in 1994. The two routes join at an elevation of 7600 m.

We’ll establish our base camp on the Godwin Austin glacier(5100 m).  Several days are reserved for acclimatization at multiple locations. Hiking the summit from the base camp involves a vertical gain of over  3500m and is facilitated by several camps. The trek also involves crossing the infamous ‘Shoulder’ at around 8000m.

Our trained guides and porters will ensure your safe ascent throughout the trip. However, you do need previous experience of climbing over 8000 m and technical expertise to embark on this trip.

If you think you have the required skills, don’t hesitate to send us a message. Book now for an unforgettable journey to the magnificent peak of K2 in Pakistan. Interested in another journey in Pakistan? Check out this incredible trek to the Broad Peak.
