Mt K2 Expedition to the second highest peak, 8,611m / 28,251ft situated in Pakistan. It is just 784 feet shorter than Mt Everest. Mt. K2 has long been known as the mountaineer’s mountain. The sharp triangle of its silhouette and height above the surrounding terrain not only define the archetypal image of a mountain but also make K2 far more difficult and dangerous to climb. Truly speaking, technically it is a rather difficult summit than Everest. The Abruzzi Spur is the most popular route while climbing Mt. K2.
Mt K2 Expedition: The Route
Climbing via the Abruzzi Spur many international expedition teams have succeeded in ascending K2. The route leads us about 300 ft. up steep wind-packed snow towards the summit ridge. From the summit of K2, we can see the 360-degree view of Mount Gasherbrum (I-VII), Masherbrum, Mustagh Tower, and Chogolisa. The summit lies vertically 650 meters above Camp 4 between 7,520 meters and 8,000 meters.\
We can complete the Mt K2 Expedition within the time span of eight weeks (from/to Islamabad) or if we wish as long as ten weeks or more depending on the weather conditions. After the summit, we cross over the 6000 meters high Gondogoro Pass and descend to the beautiful green Hushe valley until we reach Skardu.
e have been conducting Mt K2 Expedition to Pakistan for over 8 years. We have adequate knowledge of the permits procedures and personally acquainted with yak drivers/herders, vehicle hires, and hoteliers. We have our own highly experienced, hard-working Sherpa climbing team, high altitude guides, cooks, and porters from Nepal. We welcome any individual team member to join us for K2 expedition in Pakistan.
