Mount K2 (8,611m / 28.251ft) is the second highest peak in the world. Though it is just  784 feet lower than Mount Everest, it 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, it is much more technically difficult to summit than Mt. Everest. The most popular route to climb Mt. K2 Expedition is the Abruzzi Spur.

Till date, many international expedition teams have succeeded in ascending to the summit of K2 via the Abruzzi Spur. 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 Gasherbrums (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.

We have been running Mt. K2 Expedition in Pakistan for over 8 years and we know all of the permits procedures, yak drivers, and hoteliers personally over there. We have our own highly experienced, hard-working Sherpa climbing, high altitude guides, cooks, and porters from Nepal. Any individual team member can join us for the K2 expedition in Pakistan.
