One day of rest for porters and preparing food for several days in advance. The next day, transfer to the Baltoro glacier in Urdukas, where we will enjoy a unique view of Trango.

On the last day, we will reach the base camp on the Goldwin Austin Glacier. All overnight in tents.
Day 14-40
Climbing to K2. We will have enough time to climb K2. Three high-altitude camps are equipped with the help of our Pakistani porters. Camp I at an altitude of 5900m, Camp II and Camp III at an altitude of 6900m and 7400m. First, the climb goes along the flat, long clefts of the glacier. The camp is located at the foot of the Southwest Ridge, also known as a banana ridge. We will follow along a clearly defined ridge through rough terrain, along the railing. Then along the Southwest wall to the Southwest wall. We will follow until we reach the South ridge, where there will be camp II at 6900m. This section is one of the most technically demanding when climbing K2. The route will be equipped with a railing in order to guarantee a safe return. From Camp II we will follow the Southwest Wall until we reach Camp III at an altitude of 7400. Having passed the huge rocky pyramid, we will reach the eastern side of the peak K2. Then we will find ourselves on the eastern ridge, which will lead us to the peak of K2, which offers stunning views of the top of Karakorum. Note: we cannot guarantee the installation of Camp III at an altitude of 7400. It can be difficult to pitch tents due to strong winds and lack of snow. If it is impossible to establish the third camp at an altitude of 7400m, a camp of 7100m will be created and the assault of the peak can occur from there. This strategy has proven effective several times.
Day 41-48
The base camp Gondogoro Khushe Skardu Islamabad pass. To shorten the return trip, we will go through the Gondogoro Pass to the Khushe Valley. Then we will return to the Concordia plateau. Crossing the Baltoro Glacier, we will reach Ali Camp, which is located at the foot of Chogolis (also called the brides peak). We will cross the Gondogoro Glacier at night, due to the increasing danger of rockfalls in the daytime, the descent from the pass should take place as soon as possible. After our long stay on the glacier, descent to the Khushe valley. Perhaps we will make one day of rest for porters. Next we will hike to Saisho, this is another two hours where our jeeps will be waiting for us. After a 5-hour drive, we will arrive at our the starting point is Skardu. erelet Skardu - Islamabad only possible provided good visibility in the case of bad weather get to Islamabad on tour bus (2 days).
