Climbing K-2 (Chogori)

Climbing K-2 (Chogori), 8611 m

Mount K2, or as it is also called Chogori, is the second highest peak on our planet. It is below only Everest (8848 m). At the same time, Mount K2 is the most northern and most serious eight-thousander planet. Our climb does not promise to be easy and will pass along the ridge of Abruzzi

Trekking to K2 Base Camp is undoubtedly one of the most exciting adventures in the world. You will walk along one of the largest glaciers of Baltoro until it intersects with another Godwin - Austen glacier. This place of confluence of glaciers, at an altitude of 4600 - 4650 m, is called Concordia
