Altitude : 5,100m
Location : K2 Base Camp

This day we have a flexible schedule most of the trekkers want a closer look at k2 and want to visit Gilkey Memorial while most prefer to hike to Broad Peak Base camp and back to Concordia on the same day and some just want to stay at Concordia to enjoy the 360-degree view of mountains around and restore energy for k2 base camp and Gondogoro la trek. We have a whole day to fully absorb the wilderness of the “Throne Room of Mountain Gods”. Trekkers would choose the option they prefer.

Those trekkers who want to go to Broad Peak Base Camp and K2 Base camp (Gilkey Memorial) will rise early in the morning. We start our trek towards Broad peak base camp crossing the Glacial streams flowing through the junction of Glaciers very next to the Concordia camp. This part of the glacier between Concordia and K2 Base Camp is rough and technical due to the melting down of the glaciers and the rest is smooth plain track till Broad Peak Base Camp. It will take almost three hours to reach Broad Peak Base camp, where we will take our lunch and resume the trek for two more hours till k2 base camp through Godwin Austin Glacier mostly white glacier.

We can find the memories of legends who lost their lives while scaling mountains in the Karakoram.

This is the critical day of k2 Base Camp and Gondogoro la pass trek. The pass need to be crossed before the sunrise because there are chances of rock falling whiling descending the top.

Rescue people are already there we pay them and they watch the ropes on the Gondogoro Pass and assist us crossing the top.

We will continue our trek on the west Vigne glacier until Gondogoro la Base. On Gondogoro Pass base we will put on our harnesses and crampons, and start climbing slowly, our support crew will accompany us during the whole process. It normally takes 3 hours to reach the top of Gondogoro la. We will be on the top at dawn the four 8000m peaks (k2, Broad Peak, G1, and G2) and the whole Baltoro region is just in front of you whole on the other site the ravishing Laila peak and Gondogoro valley will catch your imagination.

Participants need to be extra vigilant and must watch every step while descending the top. The fixed ropes are used while descending Gondogoro la into Hushe valley. During early summer this part has snow so keep your crampons on if there is snow while after mid-summer it is mostly rocky so try to trek down without crampons. Our support crew is there always our guide will lead you from the front. Upon descending the pass, the trail becomes essay and straightforward till Khuspang Camp.
