The Baltoro Glacier, at 63 km (39 mi) in length, is one of the longest glaciers outside the polar regions. It is located in Baltistan, in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan, and runs through part of the Karakoram mountain range. The Baltoro Muztagh lies to the north and east of the glacier, while the Masherbrum Mountains lie to the south. At 8,611 m (28,251 ft), K2 is the highest mountain in the region, and three others within 20 km top 8,000 m.

The opening of the 5450m high Gondogoro La adds a new dimension to the magnificent K2 Trek, making it possible to return via the beautiful Hushe Valley. Given a little luck with weather the view from the Gondogoro La pass is just incomparable, anywhere in the world. From no other place on earth can one see such incredible views of K2 (8611m) the second highest peak in the world, and world’s most beautiful high pyramid, Broad Peak (8048m), Gasherbrums I to 6, Golden Throne (7240m), Chogolisa (7665m), and the entire upper Baltoro Massif.

This trek requires a good degree of physical fitness, as the variable weather conditions make the crossing of pass quite challenging, but more rewarding too. It is recommended that the trek may be started from, Askole as group can reach up to Concordia being able to see major Baltoro Peaks and, return the same route in case of extreme snow conditions and unkind weather situations. We also recommend that the members should take crampons and ice axes.
