Karakoram in Turkish means “Black Rubble”. In 1856 a British officer, Capt. Montgomery, surveyed a number of peaks in the Baltoro region of the Karakoram from a distance of about 200km. He noted a cluster of high peaks and named them K1, K2, K3 up to K37 using the prefix “K” from Karakoram.
In 1861 the area was further surveyed by Col. Godwin Austin who recognized K2 as the highest peak of the range and measured it to be 8619m—only three meters more than its official height (1988) of 8616m. Its local name is Chogori, which means Great Mountain.
Thus, K2, the second highest mountain in the world towers majestically above Concordia with the sweeping Godwin Austin Glacier offering an ice highway towards it. It was first climbed by Italians in 1954. The route to K2 goes through the Baltoro region of Baltistan. There are several high peaks which rise from the world’s largest temperate zone glacier. Only the highest or more prominent peaks have been named or climbed. An incredible nineteen of these peaks tower over 7600m while four of them are 8000m.
