K2 Ghandoghoro La Trek
$2500

Overview

K2 base camp trek is the most famous trekking destination around the world. No trekking is incredible than K2 route and no destination is excited than of Concordia. Concordia is a distinguished view point for 2 great mountains; K2 and Broad Peak.  It also offers 90 degree view of 7000 and 6000 high peaks around all directions. In addition, during trek from Askoli- over Baltoro glacier offers many other famous mountains such as Pajiu Peak, Trango Group and K-1.


Ghandoghoro Pass trek is on the top of list among world’s renowned mountain pas trips. It’s a short and demanding route to come back from K2 base camp. A vice versa trip would be boring and tiring .  From the top of Ghandoghoro Pass, there is an unbelievable view of K2, and 3 other 8000m peaks towering to sky Broad Peak, G-I and G- II. 


There is also an option of trekking to Gasherbrum base camp with the regular K2 base and K2 Ghandoghoro Trek. We charge 200 US dollars extra and also 2 days more needed if someone chooses to include also Gasherbrum.  In this option, we go to Gasherbrum base and come back to Concordia or we choose to go to Ghandoghoro pass via route Concordia- Shaghring- Gasherbrum BC, (Abruzzi glacier) back to junction of Baltoro and Abruzzi glacier- cross the upper Baltoro glacier to Chogholisa side- come down to Vigne glacier and go up to Ali camp. The view is stunning, we can have close looks of Gasherbrum I and 2, and view of Chogholisa is unbelievable. While in our regular trip we go to Ali camp (Ghandoghoro Pass BC) right from Concordia after visiting K2 and Broad peak base camps.
