Can I go to k2 base camp all alone without any Guide or Tour Agency?
The answer to this question is simply not, no one is allowed to go on the K2 base camp trek and many other treks in the Karakoram range without a government-licensed Local tour Guide and a Tour Company. The reason behind this is that the region where K2 is located is on Pakistan’s border with India and China, so it is a restricted zone and the visitor must have a certified guide which only a registered tour company can issue for the region.
K2 and most of the 8000m peaks lie in the Central Karakoram National Park, and the park is a restricted zone. Unlike trekking in other parts of the world, most trekkings in the Karakoram range of Pakistan require NOC (No Objection Certificate) from the government and a licensed tour guide from a registered local tour company. And the same goes for Pakistanis as well; they are also not allowed to enter the park without NOC and a Guide, so it is mandatory for both Foreigners and Pakistanis to hire a registered guide and obtain NOC prior to K2 Base Camp Trek.
