K2 B.C & GONDOGORO LA TREK

K2 BASE CAMP & GONDOGORO LA TREK:

Accessible from Skardu by road, the nearby Askole and Hushe are the main gateways to the snow-covered 8,000-metre (26,000-foot) peaks including K2, the Gasherbrums, Broad Peak, and the Trango Towers, and to the huge glaciers of Baltoro, Biafo and Trango. This makes Skardu the main tourist and mountaineering base in the area, which has led to the development of a reasonably extensive tourist infrastructure including shops and hotels. The popularity of the region results in high prices, especially during the main trekking season.

Apart from dozens more, one can see the following famous peaks from the pass:K2(Choghori) BroadPeak ,Masherbrum,Laila Peak,Gasherbrum I,Gasherbrum II,Gasherbrum III,Gasherbrum IV.
