K2 and Gondogoro La trek

Get the experience of a lifetime

K2 and Gondogoro La have lured trekkers from around the world for decades now, thanks to the splendorous views, adventure, wild and dramatic landscapes and amazing experiences trekkers get to experience all through the trek.

K2 and Gondogoro La trek is a great achievement for the trekkers in itself. But the venture is not meant for the novice trekkers because it involves trailing through dangerous mountain and glacial routes, facing harsh weather conditions, going up and down the gorges, and rushing through icy torrents.

The higher the risks, the higher the reward: when you finally make it to the Gondogoro La, you would get a truly mesmerizing, delightful, and soul enriching feeling. Of course, reaching at the foot of the second-tallest mountain on earth can be an experience of a lifetime.

The K2 and Gondogoro La trek offers you some of the most epic views of four peaks standing 8000 meters above sea level in addition to hundreds of other beautiful peaks of varying altitudes. However, you must be ready to witness and experience the odds because in them lies a truly extreme adventure. Harsh weather, deep crevasse in the glaciers, snowfall, and spending secluded nights on a frozen wasteland are included in the odds.

The trek will take you across the 62 kilometers Baltoro Glacier, which is one of the most trekked glaciers in Pakistan. Baltoro Glacier mingles with the Vigne and Godwin-Austen glaciers at the enormous natural dome of Concordia, developing one of the most stunning mountain campsites on our planet. This is the place where nature plays with art to offer you picture-perfect views of K2, creating an unmatched ambiance.
