K2 base camp trek, also referred to as the Baltoro Glacier Trek and Baltoro Concordia Trek, is one of the world’s most famous mountain treks located in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan. It is a challenging and demanding trek that involves trekking and hiking along Baltoro (5th longest glacier at 63km) and Godwin Austin.
K2 Base Camp trek provides one of the most unique and the most spectacular views of the northern mountains. K2 base camp trek gives you the opportunity to witness the following magnificent peaks which range from 5000 to 8000 meters: Gasherbrum 2 (8,035 m), K2 (world’s second highest peak at 8,611 m), Broad Peak, Masherbrum, Gasherbrum 3, Gasherbrum 4, Uli Biaho, Urdukas Peak, Mustagh Tower, Crystal Peak, Trango Towers, Biale Peak, Mitre Peak, Lobsang Spire, Marbel Peak, Cathedral Peak. This collection of the mighty peaks is also referred as the “Throne Room of Mountain Gods” for its breathtaking 360, panorama view of the mountains.
Although it is considered a challenging trek, K2 base camp trek does not require any technical or mountaineering skills to cross but it is rather a high altitude walk where you go back down from Baltoro Glacier from Concordia. The increase in altitude is very gradual and to help with the walk, acclimatization is required. The participants will walk at an average of 6 to 8 miles every day that can take between 5 to 6hours. The trail is made of rubble and stone and the participants don’t need to walk on ice.
