Description
K-2, "Mountain of Mountains", as referred to by Reinhold Messner in the account of his 1979 ascent of this giant, is 8611 m. high. K-2 is located in the heart of the Karakoram Range and can be seen in its entirety from Concordia. The sublime pyramid sits at the head of the Godwin-Austin Glacier which unites with a second glacier at Concordia to form the mighty Baltoro Glacier. Galen Rowell described Concordia as the "throne room of the mountain Gods" after viewing the exceptional mountain needles ripping open the clouds in blue expanse from the 5,000 m. floor. Four peaks above 8000 m. sit within a radius of only 13 miles from Concordia, honoring this site with the largest concentration of the highest peaks on earth.
The journey to the second highest mountain in 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, Karakoram, Hindukush, and Pamir) emerging below. Don't fret if bad weather bars this magnificent plane ride because the drive to Skardu over the famous Karakoram Highway (KKH, the old silk road) is just as spectacular. The drive takes two days with an overnight stay near Gilgit.
