K-2 BASE CAMP TREK

This trek ranked among the top ten classic hikes in the world, Concordia K-2 Base Camp Trek is a lifetime experience. The trek leads towards Concordia surrounded by a number of 8000 & 7000 M high peaks including K-2 (the king of mountains), Broad Peak, Gasherbrum IV, Baltoro Kangri, & Chogolisa etc. En-route glimpses of some other famous high mountains; Trango Tower, Masherbrum Peak, and Muztagh Tower besides many tributary glaciers of Baltoro, will mesmerize you in the wilderness. Many adventure enthusiasts believed that the beauty of the Karakoram Mountains is unique and beyond description. Starting from Islamabad; we head towards 

Skardu, the entry point of the mighty Karakorams. Driving by jeeps to Askole, a remote and last dwelling will be our first camping day. Jhula and Paiju will be next campsites. Paiju, green oasis under the shadows of Paiju Peak, here we have the first views of the immense Baltoro Glacier. Urdukas an impressive campsite with a panoramic view over the Baltoro and to the dramatic rock spires on the opposite side of the glacier. Goro II, at about 4300m, is on the glacier where ledges have been leveled out for the tents; there are views of Muztagh (7,270m), Masherbrum (7,800m) and Gasherbrum IV.
