Ambitious but fantastic.

This trip is equal to Everest’s Base Camp in it’s scenic views of some of the worlds tallest mountains. The Gondogoro La is a relatively new route up to K2’s base camp, crossing one of the highest passes in the region. Axes and ropes are used in the crossing so as well as being a strong walker you also need to have some climbing skills. This is a fantastic trek, but it’s arduous and only suitable for the ambitious.

It was one of the most amazing treks

We (group of four) did this trek in July 2010 with Vertical Explorers Pakistan. It was one of the most amazing treks and Gondogoro La was the vantage point to see the panoramic vistas.

I had wonderful experience attempting K-2 base camp and crossing Ghondogoro La on way back. Karakorum Explorers services were top class and our guide Mubarak Hussain was the best ever guide in my travels. Andrew Joseph
