The K 2 Baltoro Glacier and Concordia trek is best views of K2 (8611m), Broad Peak (8044m), Gasherbrum Group, Chogolisa (7686m) and Golden Throne (7365m). Indeed this is “Throne room of the mountain gods.And the trail along the Braldu and Biaho rivers takes hikers right into the heart of the Karakorum Mountains.

The journey to the second highest mountain K2 the world begins with a flight to Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad. One night is spent in Islamabad to obtain trekking permits and then it’s off to Skardu. Weather permitting, we will fly to Skardu; otherwise, we will travel by road. The mountain flight offers fantastic views as the plane follows the Indus River Valley and brushes past the ninth highest mountain in the world, Nanga Parbat. Looking out the aircraft window one sees a vast ocean of peaks stretching endlessly into the horizon. This area exemplifies “continents in collision” with four of the world’s greatest mountain ranges (Himalaya, Karakorum and Hindu Kush) emerging below. Don’t fret if bad weather bars this magnificent plane ride because the drive to Skardu over the famous Karakorum Highway is just as spectacular.

Skardu (2423m) is the capital of Baltistan and gateway to the high peaks of Pakistan. After purchasing supplies and an overnight rest in Skardu we will proceed by jeeps as far as the track is passed towards Askoli. Askoli is located at 3100m. And is the last village before reaching K-2.

The walk on the Baltoro provides one with ultimate mountain scenery with such well known mountains as Masherbrum (7750m), Uli Biaho Tower (6190m), Trango Towers (6300m), the Grand Cathedral (5228m), and Mustagh Tower (7284m) shooting up from this immense highway with sheer vertical lines that defy reality. After four to five days we will reach 4691m at Concordia. Here one is enriched by Marble Peak, K-2 (8611m), Broad Peak (8044m), Gasherbrum Group, Golden Throne (7365m), Chogolisa (7686m) and Mitre Peak (6038m).
