Tour Details

This most famous and well known trek leads to the hub of sky-kissing mountains like K-2  Broad peak, hidden peak and number of other famous Mashaburum Peak mountains. The scenic view from Concordia always overwhelms mountain lovers and so do the mountains like Payju peak, Trango Towers, Mashabrum and number of other peaks on the way.

The trek actually starts from Thongol and start walking for almost an hour and half by Braldo river to Askole-the last human inhibition in Baltoro trek. Sometimes jeep takes you all the way to Askole when the narrow pass is not eroded by the Braldo River or struck by sliding. Go through the small valley, cross the tiny bridge and a hike for all the way to Jula across the bridge with lunch on the way-long day indeed! The second day to Payju is long too one and not strenuous. Payju is a green sophisticated camp site and is a place where most of tourist, either heading to Baltoro or going back to Skardu, stop to relax. The main reason you stop here is a day hike to see Payu Peak to get acclimatized and also it gives porters the opportunity to prepare their butter and bread for the journey ahead as they get all provisions here.  The next day a less than two hours walk leads you to Baltoro Glacier and another 2-3 hour takes you to Khuporze, a dry campsite by the glacier.  Urdukas, a beautiful campsite, is about 5 to 6 hours breath-taking journey with panoramic views of the peaks like Pajyu peak and Trango Towers overshadowing Baltoro glacier. This campsite also gives you an opportunity to get relaxed and washed up in the tiny warm ponds nearby as the trail and campsites ahead, till you return to the same place, is glacial-just no spec of dry land.  It takes about 5 to six hours to get Goro and you have still magnificent views of glaciers and peaks all around. Next day 6 to 7-hour easy walk takes you to the Concordia-G4left-G5rightthe concentration of some of the highest mountains of the world like K-2, Broad peak, Hidden peak, Miter peak, and several other beautiful peaks. Day hike to Broad peak base camp and K-2 base camp takes almost 10 hours both ways. Moreover, the colorful G-I and G-II base camp are also accessible in an 8-9 hour journey. The campsite, always crowded with climbers and other staff, is like a clustered town. It is here where number of expeditions wait for the weather and to hunt the summit as soon as possible. The campsite is famous not only for climbers but also trekkers and the two day trip to G-I and G-II base camp adds more beauty to the journey whole. The scenic and picturesque views of G-I and G-II from the base camp is just mind-blowing.

On the other hand, you can approach Khaplu via the famous 5600m Gondogoro La and then through Hushe valley There is a direct access to the K-2 base camp and Broad base camp from G-I and G-II base camp as well. It is time now for heading back on the same track to Goro and then to Urdukas to get relaxed again. It is also possible to approach Skardu in 4th day directly from Concordia with the first night in Urdukas, second in Pajyu and third in Askole, drive to Skardu the next morning. Fly back to Islamabad and then to Homeland with beautiful memories of the mighty Karakorams
