K2, Concordia Trek 2016

K2, also known as Chogori and Mount Godwin-Austen is the second highest mountain in the world after Mount Everest, at 8,611 metres (28,251 ft) above sea level. It is located on the China-Pakistan border between Baltistan, in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan, and the Tashkorgan Tajik Autonomous County of Xinjiang, China. K2 is the highest point of the Karakoram range and the highest point in Pakistan.

K2 is known as the savage Mountain due to the extreme difficulty of ascent. It has the second-highest fatality rate among the eight thousanders. With around 300 successful summits and 80 fatalities, about one person dies on the mountain for every four who summit. It is more difficult and hazardous to reach the peak of K2 from the Chinese side; thus, it is usually climbed from the Pakistani side. Unlike Annapurna, the mountain with the highest fatality-to-summit rate (191 summits and 61 fatalities), K2 has never been climbed during winter.

Concordia is the name for the confluence of the mighty Baltoro Glacier and the Godwin-Austen Glacier, in the heart of the Karakoram Range of Pakistan. It is located in Baltistan region of Pakistan. The name was applied by European explorers, and comes from this location’s similarity to a glacial confluence, also named Concordia, in the Bernese Oberland, part of the Central Alps.

Around Concordia are clustered some of the highest peaks in the world. Four of the world’s fourteen “eight-thousanders” are in this region, as well as a number of important lower peaks.

Concordia offers the region’s best place to camp for mountain enthusiasts not involved in climbing. With scenic views, it also offers short treks to several important base camps: K2 (5–6 hours), Broad Peak (2–3 hours) and the Gasherbrum I & II (7–8 hours). An alternative exit to returning down the Baltoro Glacier is available by climbing the Gondogoro Pass (5940 meters).

We at Hunza Explorers welcome you to explore this beautiful part of the world with us. We operate trek Concordia from May – September every year.
