K-2 Base Camp and the Gilroy Memorial, a spectacular full day trip. From the base of the K-2 there are extensive views up towards Savoia Saddle to the west, and Windy Gap and Advance Base Camp on the Abruzi Ridge to the east. The best views of K-2 are from Concordia, the Abruzi Ridge clearly visible to the summit.
This is one of the most scenic and spectacular mountain journeys on the planet.
It is unrivalled in its grandeur, isolation, and consistency of proximity to some of the world’s highest and most impressive mountains. The route is sustained, and is generally only suitable for persons with previous trekking experience at medium altitudes. A robust level of fitness would be advantageous, as well as the capacity to live in close quarters with others in a remote environment for a period of 3-4 weeks.
