Earth’s Edge are coming in to give another talk about a new trip they’re running this year. The trek to K2 Basecamp is one for the more experienced and fit climbers, it’s one that’ll really test you. Read the trip description below
This epic to K2 Base Camp Trek (5,400m) is one of the world’s most iconic trekking expeditions. Rather than take the normal out-and-back route, after reaching K2 Base Camp we cross the Gondogoro La pass (5,585m) and finish our adventure in the Hushe Valley, maximising our experience of the Karakoram.
The K2 Base Camp trek is made special by the epic scenery throughout our journey up the Baltoro Glacier, with more mountains coming into view the further we travel. The highlight of the trek is reaching Concordia which is the confluence of the mighty Baltoro and Godwin-Austen Glaciers. Also known as the “Throne Room of the Mountain Gods” one is rewarded with a stunning panoramic view which includes more than 40 peaks over 6,500m in height, four of which are over 8,000m.
This 24-day journey which includes 14 days of trekking is suitable for experienced and adaptable trekkers with a strong sense of adventure. It is a camping trek which is fully supported by our team of friendly porters local to the Baltistan region.
