K2 Base camp Trek
Posted January 7th, 2013 - 9:36 am by from Karachi, Pakistan (Permalink)

walk to Concordia, K-2 BC however, is not a task to be undertaken
lightly. It's a hard trek up and down the gorges, across rushing icy
torrents, through broken rocks, over wire-rope bridges and through
crevasse glaciers. The incentive for this strenuous walk is undoubtedly
equally rewarding. Chongo Brakk, Mango Gusar, Chiring, Bakhordas,
Bermuda, Liligo, Paiju, Trango Towers Group, Uli Biaho Towers, Mitre
Peak, Muztagh Tower, Gasherbrum 3, 4, 5 & 6, Broad Peak, Chogolisa,
Golden Throne, Sia Kangri, Angles, Marble Peak & the Mighty K-2 are
just a few of the innumerable mountain vistas to be witnessed on this
trek in addition to tranquil lakes, blossoming fruit orchards,
meandering rivers, tumbling water falls and undulating sand dunes with a
unique blend of the modest Balti culture marked with distinct language,
architecture and dresses.
