K2 & Gondogoro La
This is a challenging trek to Concordia and K2 Base Camp followed by crossing the technical Gondogoro La pass.
Our K2 & Gondogoro La trip in July/ August 2016 led by Ade Summers is now guaranteed to run and there is currently availability if you would like to join this group.
K2 & Gondogoro is considered to be one of the world’s great treks with breathtaking scenery unsurpassed anywhere else in the high mountains. The journey starts with a flight to Skardu with spectacular views of the Karakoram range including Nanga Parbat, after several nights in Skardu we take jeep transport to the road head at Askole.
The trail is lined with rugged mountains all the way from the last village in the Braldu gorge at Askole up the Baltoro glacier to Concordia, you will see the Trango Towers, Masherbrum, K2 and Broad Peak among many others. Concordia has been described as the "Throne Room of the Gods" for its unique 360° panorama of 7,000m mountains and impressive views of K2.
After a few days time exploring K2 and Broad Peak Base Camps, we start the challenging trek out over the Gondogoro La and descend into the beautiful Hushe valley. If you think the crossing of the Gondogoro La is going to be too challenging for you, we offer an option to descend the Baltoro glacier back to Askole.
Please take a look at this video on YouTube taken by a member of our K2 & Gondogoro La group in 2008, this gives a really good idea of what to expect on this trek- K2 & Gondogoro la in 5 minutes on YouTube
In 2016 we are planning to run two treks to K2 Base Camp starting at the same time. K2 Base Camp & Gondogoro La trek requires mountaineering skills to cross this pass. Whereas for K2 Base Camp & Concordia this is a high altitude walk where no technical skills are required and you walk back down Baltoro glacier from Concordia. Please get in touch with us if you would like to discuss requirements to join these treks.
