Gandogoro La and K2 Trek

1/4
Overview

The epic trek to Gondogoro La is one of the most adventurous and technical treks in Pakistan. Gondogoro La is a 5940m pass that separates the Hushe Valley from the Upper Baltoro Glacier, but that is not what makes it special. From the pass, one of the world's greatest mountain panoramas unfolds before you. The four 8000 meter peaks of the Karakorums are easily visible, including K2 (8611m), and countless smaller peaks stretch into the distance as far as you can see. This is an awe-inspriring place that few people ever get to experience.
The Gondogoro La Trek can be started from either Hushe in the east or Askole in the west. Most people choose to start from Askole for a few reasons: the approach is longer and gives more time for acclimatization and if conditions are not good for crossing the pass, trekkers don't miss visiting Concordia and the Baltoro Glacier.
