K2 Base Camp Trek opens again

K2 Base Camp Trek opens again

We are pleased to say that the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) have amended their travel advice regarding Gilgit, Skardu and the Karakoram Mountains in Pakistan, making it possible once more to trek to the base of the world's second highest mountain.

We are pleased to say that the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) have amended their travel advice regarding Gilgit, Skardu and the Karakoram Mountains in Pakistan, making it possible once more to trek to the base of the world's second highest mountain. K2 is often regarded as far more beautiful and impressive than Everest. It stands surrounded by a host of some of the world's tallest peaks laced together by the largest glaciers outside the Polar Regions. Reaching K2 Base Camp is an expedition in its own right because once the roadhead is left behind the Balti villages are soon lost from sight and the trek takes you into a vast uninhabited region of granite peaks and pinnacles. Huge glaciers lead the visitor to Concordia - a vast junction of many of the largest glaciers, including the famous Baltoro Glacier. K2 stands alone presiding over its acolyte peaks, a vast awesome pyramid creating its own weather systems and a holy grail for the world's toughest and bravest mountaineers.

Mountain Kingdoms is pleased to offer treks into the region again and is offering one departure this August.
