Trip Introduction

Mount K2 8611 M is the second highest peak in the world and the highest peak in Pakistan. Mount K2 is also known as CHOGORI, which in the Balti language, means the king of mountains. K2 has variously been described as "awesome", " Killer" and "Savage" Mountain. This is because of massiveness of its size and unsuccessful attempts made on it by various expedition parties. K2 is rocky mountain upto 6000-M, beyond which it becomes an ocean of snow. K2, 8611-M is situated on the Pakistan China border in the mighty Karakorams. The traditional rout to its base camp goes from Skardu Baltistan, which is linked, with Islamabad by Karakoram Highway as well as by air. From Skardu the route goes via Shigar-Dassu-Askole upto Concordia over the Baltoro Glacier.

 

Broad Peak, an 8000m peak to climb in Pakistan mountain in the world at 8,047 meters, is located in the Karakoram Range in Northeastern Pakistan. The mountain is located along the western Baltoro glacier between K2 and Gasherbrum IV. The first ascent of Broad Peak, in Pakistan's Karakoram mountains, was achieved by a small Austrian expedition in 1957. Broad Peak is the twelfth highest mountain in the world and was the eleventh of the world's 14 "eight thosanders" (peaks of at least 8000m) to be climbed. All four of the team members - Marcus Schmuck, Fritz Wintersteller, Kurt Diemberger, and Hermann Buhl - reached the summit.
