Trekking to K2 base camp 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. Moving towards k2 base camp, to gondogoro la trek need more technical skills then Concordia trek
The apex of this incredible trek is CONCORDIA one of the biggest Piedmont glaciers of the world. It is a spectacular junction of Godwin Austin Glacier, Abruzzi Glacier, and Baltoro Glacier. It banks 06 peaks over 25,912 ft (7900 M) within a short radius of 07 miles (11 Km). The walk to Concordia, however, is not a task to be undertaken lightly. It’s a hard trek up and down the gorges, across rushing icy torrents, through broken rocks, over wire-rope bridges, and through crevasse glaciers. The incentive for this strenuous walk is undoubtedly equally rewarding.
K2 base camp trek and gondogoro la trek is one of the greatest treks in the world, unbeatable in terms of close-up mountain views and proximity to many of the world’s highest peaks. However, this is a tough but rewarding trek, with many days being spent on the rugged, tumbled glacier as you head up to ‘Concordia’ where the Baltoro Glaciers and the Godwin-Austen glaciers converge in beauty and simplicity of ice and rock.
