Gondogoro La Trek

Gondogoro la trekking is a 20-days journey which includes 13 days of trekking, it is suitable for experienced and adaptable trekkers with a strong sense of adventure. K2 Base Camp and Gondogoro la trek is considered to be one of the world’s great treks with breathtaking views of four 8,000m peaks and is thought by many to be one of the best high mountain treks in the world. K2 Base Camp Trek is been described as the “Throne Room of the Mountain Gods” for its unique panoramic view of 7,000m mountains and views of K2.

Trek starts from Askoli Village, where we trek over Baltoro glacier to Concordia which offers views of several famous 6,000 m and 7,000 m peaks, several glaciers (including Biafo – world’s 3rd longest non-polar 63 km (39 mi) glacier).

This Trek is famous for two routes. Returning from K2 base camp via same route it is called “K2 Base Camp Trek” if extended the trek back route via Gondogoro pass is known as “K2 Base Camp & Gondogoro La Trek” This is demanding circular trek; the pass is very steep and crossing it requires the use of fixed ropes to ascend and descend. So, in a way, this is beyond more adventurous trekking.  Gondogoro La connects Baltoro region with Hushey Valley, home to the exquisite Laila Peak (6,096m) and some small villages like Hushey and Kanday.

Gondogoro La Trek is famous as from top of Gondogoro pass (5,585) it offers breathtaking views of 8 thousand-meter peaks i.e. K2 (8,611m), Broad Peak (8,047m) and Gasherbrum Peaks.

Our programme Gondogoro La Trek allows three days in the upper reaches of the Baltoro Glacier to savour the majesty of this unique place. The highest point reached on this trek is the 5,680m summit of the Gondogoro La. This is a challenging and technical route, which links the high glacial basin of the upper Baltoro with the green Hushe Valley to the south. The view from the summit is one of the most overwhelming mountain panoramas in the world, with four of the Karakoram 8,000m peaks close at hand.
