E-mail
- Concordia: The Throne Room of the Mountain Gods.
- The legendary Gondogoro La and the Extreme Route to Concordia and K2.
- The world’s tallest granite walls and the awesome Trango Towers.
- 7 of the worlds 25 highest peaks immediately above the Baltoro Glacier.



Islamabad-Skardu-Askole-Concordia-Return
(Optional return via Gondogoro Pass & Hushe Valley)
(Karakoram Range) 18-23 Days-Strenuous
Mode of Travel: Fly/Jeep/Trek-Motel/Camp
The Karakoram Range contains four mountains above 8000m and scores above 7000m. These peaks dominate the upper end of enormous valleys and some of the largest glaciers on earth.

Concordia is the meeting point of such dramatic glaciers and valleys. The Baltoro and the Godwin Austin [K-2] glaciers join forces here to flow for dozens of miles along the Braldo valley, carving an incredible landscape out of bare granite.

Leaving the village of Askole, we will walk along a corridor of high, sharp peaks sandwiched between the Mashebrum and the Altoro Muztag to reach the “Throne Room of the Gods”, from where K2, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum IV, and many other peaks above 7000m are in full view.

Weather and time permitting, side-trips to K2 and/or Broad Peak base camps can be enjoyed on this trek. This spectacular journey is perhaps the most popular of all routes amongst trekkers and is ideally-suited to experienced and fit trekkers.

K2 and Broad Peak are also accessible via the Gondogoro Pass from the Hushe Valley and Masherbrum region to the south. This alternate route is equally as strenuous and scenic, providing trekkers the opportunity to experience the seldom-visited eastern slopes of the former kingdom of Baltistan and discover the beauty of the south side of the Karakoram Range.
