Name K2 Base camp Concordia And Gondogoro Pas Trek

The view from the summit of this nearly 5585m. pass (Gondogoro La) is beyond description. In the opinion of many, it is simply the finest mountain panorama in the world. K-2, Broad Peak, the four Gasherbrums, Trinity Peak, (8000+ m) summits and a multitude of lesser pinnacles touch the heavens all around you. One must make an extra effort from Concordia to reach the spectacle. The trek to the top of the Gondogoro La includes some 600m of ice and snow slope climbs that require the use of an ice axe, crampons, harness, helmet, ropes, and carabiners.
The first leg of the trek takes us to Concordia (see the K-2 Trek description for this trip segment). Upon leaving Concordia we hike up to Ali Camp, situated at approximately 5666 m. above the Vigne Glacier. The fluted and icy-white slopes of Chogolisa tower in front of us, reminiscent of a wedding gown, which gives rise to Chogolisa’s other name: Bride’s Peak.
Notable Features:
Being the highest mountain pass of the world, the views from the top of pass are unforgettable, by the views of many famous climbers from around the world, it offers the best mountain scenery anywhere in the world. Apart from dozens more, one can see the following famous peaks from the pass K2(Choghori), Broad Peak, Masherbrum, Laila Peak, Gasherbrum I, Gasherbrum II, Gasherbrum III, Gasherbrum IV.
