The Great Karakaorum Traverse

The Karakorum Challenge

We call this trek the Karakorum Challenge because it is for the most experienced and passionate trekkers. Under this expedition, you will trek through the famous Gondogoro La, cross by the foot of the glorious K2 and experience the splendors of nature at the Snow Lake. 

The trek starts in Hushe Valley and proceeds to the Gondogoro La pass, which is 5585 meters above sea level, to finally arrive at Concordia, the great intersection of three glaciers. At this point, your experience of nature’s wonders would go to a completely new level. You will get splendid views of K2, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum II from this point.

The good news is that we have a day’s stay at Concordia and you can avail the opportunity to trek to the K2 base camp before we set off for the Baltoro Glacier challenge. Finally, we will cross across the Baltoro and Biafo glaciers and follow the trail to the mesmerizing Snow Lake. The trek will end in Nagar valley after we descend there by trekking through the 5151 meters high Hispar La.
