Welcome to Skardu, Pakistan

We are a hometown company providing dedicated and complete destination services for K2 base camp trek, Gondogoro La Trek and additional trails (including numerous mountain passes) in the Karakoram Range. For the love of our mountains, we do our best to provide reliable information, meaningful guidance, user-friendly online booking system and complete logistics for full-board treks via Baltoro Glacier to Concordia, K2 Base Camp and Gondogoro La/Pass.

K2 base camp trek mainly involves walking over and marching along the world’s 5th longest non-polar glacier i.e. Baltoro glacier (63 km). At the end of Baltoro glacier is Concordia which is known as “Throne Room of Mountain Gods”. It is the supreme point for views of K2 (world’s second tallest mountain) and other mighty peaks above 8000 m.

It is a legend that one night under the grand mountains in Concordia adds to life span of any soul by one year. Concordia is a glacial confluence of the Baltoro Glacier with the Glacier of Godwin Austen. Trek to K2 base camp and Broad Peak base camp is altogether a one day return trip from Concordia on the Godwin Austen glacier.

Trekking to K2 Base Camp

Trekking from Askoli (first camp) over Baltoro glacier to Concordia offers views of several famous 6000 m and 7000 m peaks, several glaciers (including Biafo – world’s 3rd longest non-polar), glacial lakes etc. You can easily access the itinerary for the trek to K2 base camp.

There are two options on return to Concordia after trek to K2 base camp. One is taking the same route back home and the second is crossing a mountain pass for more adventures.

When K2 base camp trek is extended from Concordia towards Hushey valley over Gondogoro La (Pass), the comprehensive trek is then commonly referred to as “Gondogoro La Trek” and also “K2 Gondogoro La Trek”. It is a strenuous but an action-packed and demanding circular trek (Gondogoro La Map).

K2 Gondogoro La Trek involves trekking first over the Upper Baltoro glacier and later on the Vigne glacier before ascending and crossing the Gondogoro la/pass (5585 m). The top of the pass is a broad area offering breathtaking views of 4 eight thousand meter peaks.

Trekking to K2 Base Camp

After descending the pass, the walk mostly continues over glaciers (including Gondogoro glacier) and lateral moraine. The trek offers views of new landscape including pastures, glaciers and gorgeous peaks until the downstream journey is made to Hushey valley.

These two incredible trekking routes mentioned above which were once considered harsh proposals are now considered good challenges by hiking and trekking enthusiasts from around the world. On this dedicated website we offer fixed departures for trekking to K2 base camp and K2 Gondogoro La Trek. We also welcome personalized plan requests from groups and individuals.

We are the base camp for trekking in the Karakoram mountains. Book with us now!

FROM KARAKORAM,

Why is Karakorum Safe for Trekkers?

Unlike the perception of many foreigners, the northern Karakoram region is not part of the fragile North Western tribal areas and is separate from that region with no passes leading to those fragile areas. Karakorum is located in Gilgit Baltistan that is a different province. It is a separate administration unit since 1970 but it is administered directly by Islamabad under the UN resolution.

Why is Karakorum Trekker’s Paradise?

And you can find yourself enjoying the area without meeting other trekkers, climbers or wanderlust as few challenge the unknown mountains. It gives you a true wilderness experience. Unlike the Himalayas the topography of the Karakorum Mountains is rigid, unfertile and not inhibited by locals. The villages are miles away from most of the high peaks and mountains and even the base camps.
