Mountain K2 (also known as Chhogori/Qogir, Ketu/Kechu, and Mount Godwin-Austen) is the second-highest mountain on Earth, after Mount Everest. It is located on the border   between Baltistan, in the Gilgit¨CBaltistan region of northern Pakistan, and the Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County of Xinjiang, China.  With a peak elevation of 8,611 m (28,251 feet), K2 is the highest point of the Karakoram Range and the highest point in Pakistan.


The Mountain K2 Tours and Expeditions are one of our most popular tour packages as it combines both the trek to the  Mountain K2 Base camp as well as China Cultural exploration. As we Trek Mountain K2 we¡¯ll see it in our reach throughout the three weeks as we pass through Borad Peak and the Gasherbrums from the north. It is arguably the most exraordinary display of apline scenenery on the planet - a must see for mountain connosieurs, photographers, outdoor enthusiasts, adventure addicts, you get the picture!


We¡¯ll trek along rivers, over a 16,000 foot pass, and up to the Mountain K2 Glacier. Being that trekking Mountain K2 is extremely challenging and extrenous we¡¯ll have camals to haul your overnight gear and food while you carry a small daypack. You¡¯ll also get to ride your camel across a few rivers on as we travel through one of the least visited parts of the Himalays. As part of our China Cultural exploration we¡¯ll also get to visit Kashgar, home of much Islamic architecture, in the Xinjiang province, one of the most important, scenic, and historical locations of the Silk Road.
