K2 Base Camp Trek

Journey to the Throne Room of the Mountain Gods in the world’s most spectacular range

This fabled route up the Bal­toro Glac­i­er to K2 base camp is tru­ly one of the world’s great­est treks, and jus­ti­fi­ably so. Sur­round­ed by six peaks over 25,919 feet / 7,900 meters and crowned by the mas­sif of K2, this is with­out ques­tion one of the most mag­nif­i­cent places on the plan­et and deserves its descrip­tion as The Throne Room of the Moun­tain Gods.” The list of peaks along the way is exten­sive and each holds a sig­nif­i­cant place in climb­ing his­to­ry. Muz­tagh Tow­er, Gasher­brum IV, Mitre Peak, Chogolisa, Tran­go Tow­ers, Uli Bia­ho, Paiyu Peak, Broad Peak and K2 form a gallery of the most beau­ti­ful, and most dan­ger­ous places on earth.

Flight Information

The total num­ber of days for your trip includes all trav­el to and from your des­ti­na­tion, with some excep­tions. Dates list­ed on the web­site start with your depar­ture date from the U.S. and include the day you arrive home. For this trip you will need to arrive in Islam­abad, Pak­istan on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary. You will cross the date line in mid-flight to Asia, thus los­ing a day. If you are trav­el­ing from out­side the U.S. your itin­er­ary may require less time to reach Islam­abad, so all that is required is that you arrive on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary, where Moun­tain Mad­ness ser­vices begin. If you arrive ear­ly, we can assist with extra hotel arrange­ments and activ­i­ties. Oth­er­wise, you can arrive at any time on Day 3. You will be met at the air­port by a Moun­tain Mad­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tive and trans­ferred to your hotel. 

Your return flight home should be sched­uled for the sec­ond to last day of the itinerary.

Please con­tact our office for any help need­ed with your flight schedule.
