Trek Concordia & K2 Base Camp

Duration: 21 days
From: £2,899.00

A tough but rewarding trek packed with unrivalled high mountain scenery and breathtaking views of Pakistan's K2

This adventure is an unrivalled high mountain trek – truly one of the world’s greatest. Located at the confluence of the Baltoro and Godwin Austen glaciers, Concordia is an extraordinary place. It is dominated by K2, the world’s second highest mountain. As if that isn’t enough, Broad Peak, Mitre Peak, Gasherbrum 4, and Chogolisa from a circle of giants which some have called ‘the throne room of the gods.’

The trek starts in Askole, followed by the Braldu gorge to Baltoro glacier. From there you head to Concordia, with optional walks to the base camps of Broad Peak and K2. There are 14 nights of camping and 13 days of point to point walking. The trek is challenging due to the high elevations (4,500m for Concordia).

Previous altitude experience is needed as is an above average level of fitness. There will be porters and expert guides with you each step of the way with encouragement and safety.

Highlights:

  • Magnificent mountain vistas
  • Trek to K2 base camp
  • Time spent in a remote and wild landscape
  • Challenge yourself further than you ever have
  • Visit Islamabad, Skardu, Askole, and Paiju

Trip notes

All breakfasts, 17 lunches and 17 dinners included. All food is provided throughout apart from lunches and dinners in Islamabad, we suggest you allow around £50 for these meals. Food on trek is simple but wholesome.

The trek is graded ‘Tough’ with 13 days walking to a maximum altitude of 4,500m at Concordia (5,120m Gilkey Memorial just below K2 Base Camp – optional) and an average of 3,650m.

Previous altitude experience is necessary and you must be prepared physically. The walking on the Baltoro glacier is fairly tough and is definitely not recommended for those who have not previously been walking at a strenuous level in high mountain regions in recent years. It can also be extremely hot in the early stages of the trek and on the glacier during the day, so please also bear this in mind. There are river crossings, and if the rivers are too high we may have to use alternative trails.

We do not advise inexperienced walkers to attempt this trek. There is no habitation, except a couple of military posts, after leaving Askole, so conditions are more basic and remote than elsewhere. It also means that it is extremely difficult to leave the trek should you be struggling with this level of activity.

This adventure can also be booked with UK return flights by the operator – to get prices, dates and availability for the flight option please complete an enquiry form today and mention your flight interest in the message section. Thanks!

Tour operator

If you’re looking for a company with experience you can’t beat these guys. This operator started life in February 1974 when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to travel to the Minaret of Jam, deep in the heart of the Hindu Kush, the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments.

For the company, and people who work for them “it’s all about adventure” which is what they were founded on and what they are still about today. Their trips take place all around the world where they help travelers to delve into local traditions, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles – anything that contributes to a country’ unique identity.

We love that their groups and guides travel courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise the impact, to ensure that every holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved.
