Gasherbrum II (8,035 meters / 26,362 feet)

Details

Gasherbrum II, standing tall at 8,035 meters (26,362 feet) in the Karakoram Range near K2, is the 13th highest mountain globally. Also known as K4, it entices climbers with its challenging ascent and breathtaking surroundings. The mountain's name, Gasherbrum, translates to "beautiful mountain" in the local Balti language. With a distinct pyramidal shape, Gasherbrum II offers a formidable climb featuring steep slopes and icy conditions, making it a compelling challenge for mountaineers. The first successful ascent occurred in 1956, accomplished by an Austrian team, adding to the allure of this remote and pristine peak. Surrounded by the stunning landscapes of the Karakoram, Gasherbrum II provides climbers with both a testing ground for their skills and a visual feast of natural beauty.

TREK TO CONCORDIA (4,600m) 5 HOURS WALK

Today we will trek to Concordia, it will take us through what must arguably be the most spectacular mountain scenery anywhere in the world. Our approach to Concordia continues along the heaving swells of the Baltoro Glacier as we pass Mustagh Tower (7,284m). Ahead of us Gasherbrum IV (7,925m) acts like a beacon drawing us on, whilst at some points on today’s walk we can also see Gasherbrum ll (8,035m) which peeks out to the right of Gasherbrum lV. As we make our way up the Baltoro, the aptly named Broad Peak (8,051m) comes into view above the ridge connecting Marble Peak and Crystal Peak on our left. K2 keeps itself hidden until the very moment we reach Concordia when suddenly its full height is revealed in sweeping lines that climb almost 4,000 metres from the valley floor to the summit – a sight that will never be forgotten. Concordia is a wide area where glaciers coming down from K2 meet those from the Gasherbrums and Chogolisa. It is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular places on the planet and here you can stand within 24 kilometres of no fewer than four eight-thousanders and ten of the world’s thirty highest peaks! We make our camp at approximately 4,500 metres on a moraine ridge surrounded on all side by jagged peaks including Gasherbrum IV, Mitre Peak, Chogolisa, Crystal Peak, Marble Peak, Baltoro Kangri, Broad Peak and K2.
