Though not a mountain itself, the Baltoro Glacier in Northern Pakistan is surrounded by an incredible collection of famous peaks like K2, Broad Peak, Trango Towers, the Gasherbrums, Chogolisa and many, many others.

The glacier itself can be trekked in about 10 days, which offers unparalleled views of the highest concentration of high peaks in the world.

The Karakoram range is climbed in summer, from June –September the hike can be done. Support is by porters and guides.
