Mt. K2 Expedition

K2 is the world's second highest mountain after Mt. Everest. It is located on the border between China and Pakistan. It is said to be much more technically difficult to summit than Mt. Everest. The most popular and generally considered one of the most dangerous routed, is the Abruzzi Spur. While passing through this avalanche prone route, we have to be very careful. K2 is also called 'The Savage Mountain' due to the extreme difficulty of ascent and highest fatality rate among the world's eight thousand highest mountains. From the summit, we can see the entire Karakoram Range, including the Gasherbrums (I-VII), Masherbrum, Mustagh Tower and Chogolisa.

We can complete K2 expedition less than eight weeks (from/to Islamabad) or as long as ten weeks or more depending on the weather conditions. After the summit we cross over the 6000 meter high Gondogoro Pass and descend to the beautiful green Hushe valley until we reach Skardu.


An unexpected situation can always occur, especially this part of the region. So please make sure your Travel Insurance includes right level of Cancellation Cover for you.
