K2 Base Camp Trek Pakistan – 2024 is a 21-day long tailor-made trek. It stands out as the top trekking destination for 2024 in the eyes of many.
The crown of Karakoram is K2. The path winds along the Braldu Valley from the remote village of Askole before ascending the Baltoro Glacier to Concordia, located 12km (7.5 miles) from K2. Here, one can witness four 8,000m (26,247ft) peaks from a single location: K2, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum I, and Gasherbrum II.

Go through the video to get an idea of What the K2 Base Camp journey feels like.
K2 stands at an altitude of 5,117 meters or 16,785 feet in the northwestern Karakoram Range in Pakistan, partially within the Kashmir Region. Like many high peaks, people give K2 different names. Consequently, in Chinese, they know K2 as Qogir Feng, and locally, they refer to the mountains as Dapsang or Chogori. Also, the English name for the mountain is Mount Godwin-Austen, after Henry Haversham Godwin-Austen a British topographer who surveyed the area around K2 in the late 19th Century.
It does not ease the nervousness to read about Savage Mountain, about a lack of infrastructure, and about having to stay in a tent for over two weeks while you are thinking of doing this trek. The K2 Base Camp Trek Pakistan is safe. Our guides have been selected based on their technical competence, proven safety efficiency, impeccable judgment, and ability to provide valuable and experienced guidelines.
This trek is not savage, but it is wild. Without having to scale any peaks, this trek helps you to experience an expedition. Unlike Everest Base Camp, there is not that much in K2 Base Camp. In reality, there is absolutely nothing outside of the trekking and climbing season at the location of K2 Base Camp.
Furthermore, this magnificent trek begins in Askole and follows the Braldu gorge to the snout of the Baltoro glacier, which trekkers can then follow to reach Concordia. An optional day walk to K2 and Broad Peak base camps is available. This is one of the most beautiful mountain treks in the world, and with a scenery of unmatched grandeur, it is wild and remote.
Be part of the upcoming K2 Base Camp Trek Pakistan – 2024 and acquaint yourself with the Karakoram.
The aforementioned trek starts in June 2024.
Grab your seats for the adventure of a lifetime 🙂
