K-2 Base Camp & Gondogoro La Trek

In 1986, established a new and wonderful trekking route that connects the Baltoro Glacier to Hushe Valley over a Pass called GONDOGORO LA 5700m above Sea level. Since then, this challenging Pass has attracting large number of trekking groups as well as numerous climbing expeditions all around the world. However, the popularity of this trek is also an accurate reflection of its attractions. This is along the BRALDU River then into Baltoro Glacier is a long and extremely demanding one. This route follows mainly on the Baltoro Glacier, which is 65km long. The climax of the Baltoro Glacier is the beautiful conjunction of the Godwin Austin Glacier, which descends from K-2 and Baltoro Glacier called “CONCORDIA 4700M” lying in the heart of the most heavily glaciered region outside the Polar area and densest concentration of peaks on earth. On the other hand it leads you you right into the heart of Karakorum Mountains at Concordia to K-2 Base Camp then on Vigne Glacier to the foot of Gondogoro Pass. After the crossing there is Khuespang Camp full of flowers then to the Dalzampa,after then a beautiful place for camp with water and meadows on Gondoghoro Glacier to the Saiecho and finally to the Hushe Valley.
