Overview

The most famous trekking route in the world is K2 base camp, a strenuous and demanding but rewarding as well. Starting from Skardu, the capital of Baltistan, we cross Shigar, a lush green fertile and fruit-laden valley, and drive as far as Askole, the road ahead, and the last dwelling before entering into the Galen Rowell’s ‘throne room of the mountain gods‘.Walking on the treacherous but panoramic Baltoro Glacier, we see several famous and beautiful mountains en route. 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 Karakorum, 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 ).

The beauty of the place has no match in the world and the view of K2 is gorgeous. The return journey is possible via the same route or crossing the Ghondoghoro La, a technical pass at 5650 meters, offering a good challenge to epic enthusiasts. This route leads to Hushe, another picturesque valley of Baltistan.
