K2 TREK

The K2 Base Camp Trek is considered one of the greatest treks in the world, offering simply outstanding views of some of the world’s biggest mountains on a much more secluded route than the more well-known Everest Base Camp and the like.

A challenging trek

We will begin our journey in Islamabad where we will spend 2 nights, giving everyone a chance to settle in and meet the rest of the team, run through our itinerary for the coming days and do any last minute shopping. From Islamabad we will take a plane to town of Skardu, with this flight giving us incredible views of the Karakoram range, including Nanga Parbat. We will spend two nights here before driving by jeep to our next stop, Askole which is the last village on the route. We will spend just one night at Askole before the trekking starts and we move on to Jhola for the night. We will then move on the next day, further up the glacier to Paiyu for a couple of nights to allow for some rest and adjusting to our new elevation, then onwards again to Urdukas for one night. From here our next port of call will be Goro for a night, and then we move into the Broad Peak basecamp for our next night. The next morning we wake up to our Base Camp Day as we head out of Broad Peak camp and onto K2 Base Camp and celebrate reaching our goal and being able to rest/explore the area for the next few days.  

Our route back will be a similar experience to the way up, only we should now feel the benefits of being acclimatised to the altitude as we head out through Goro, Khuburze, Paiyu, Johia, Askole, Skardu and finally back to Islamabad. 

This trip is a much tougher trek than something like the Everest Basecamp Trek; it’s in a far more remote area of the world, and most nights will see us camping in the rough terrain unlike others where we use lodges in well-established towns all the way along the route. Of course this does mean we benefit from having a much more solitary experience with very few other people around, and we get to see sights few others will ever see, mountains such as Gasherbrum, Broad Peak and of course the mighty K2.
