Pilgrimage To High Heavens – K-2 Circle Trek

Pilgrimage To High Heavens – K-2 Circle Trek

This trek requires group members to be in good physical condition because weather conditions can sometimes be difficult. The trek should start from Askole to be able to reach Concordia and see Baltoro Peaks. With good weather, the trek is an easy one. The opening of Gonogoro-La makes it possible to return via Hushey valley. If the weather is kind, the view from this pass is fine and one can see an excellent panorama of K-2 (8611m, the second highest peak in the world), Broad Peak (8048m), Gashabrum 1-6, Chogolosa (7665m) and Upper Baltoro.
