  • Technical Challenging
  • Expedition
  • K2 is the world's second-highest mountain after Mount Everest. It is located on the China Pakistan border between Baltistan in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Northern Pakistan standing at an altitude of 8611 m. It is the highest point of the Karakoram range and the highest point in both Pakistan and Xinjiang. K2 is also known as the King of Mountains and the Mountaineers Mountain. This mountain was first climbed by the Italian climbers Lino Lacedelli and Achille compagnoni on the 31st of July 1954.

    K2 is only the mountain which has never been climbed during winter or from its East face. The major routes that have been climbed on the south side of the mountain are The West Ridge; The West Face; Southwest Pillar; South Face; South-southeast Spur; Abruzzi Spur. The ascents have almost been made in July and August. Although the summit of Everest is at a higher altitude, K2 is a more difficult and dangerous mountain to climb, due in parts to it's more inclement weather. So the climbers who wish to climb K2 must be very fit and active winter climbers in good health. Though it is the risky mountain, the pleasure to climb K2 overcomes the danger, especially if it is assessed carefully during our expedition periods.
