Dasha Sivova, guide of the 7 Summits Club:
Already in the capital of Pakistan, we summed up the results of this incredible journey in numbers:
⁃ More than 130km has been covered;
⁃ Maximum height reached: Gondogoro Pass 5480m;
⁃ Longest crossing of Khuspang-Khushe: 26km.
But the most important thing is the team that has come all this way together!
We discovered the most beautiful places in Pakistan, which took your breath away. We have passed paths that only a few people have walked. Wild and pristine.
Now our team has finally agreed that you need to go trekking to the K2 Base Camp at least once in your life! And this is the most beautiful trekking in the world!
