Day 2-3: Either two days bus trip to Skardu with overnight stay in Chilas or the conditions allow a flight to Skardu. The bus ride has its charm and takes us through the varied landscape of Pakistan to the Indus Valley, where we will take the legendary Karakorum Highway. On the second day shortly after Chilas we see in good weather the Nanga Parbat with the Rhakiot flank mastered by Hermann Buhl from the road. The drive on the second day is a bit shorter. Overnight stay in a hotel in Skardu.
Day 4: We spend the day in the small but lively town Skardu at 2300m. The porters are organized, the luggage is loaded and one can make last errands or undertake a hike.
Day 5: Journey with jeeps through a wild, impressive landscape and wild gorges to Askole at 3050m. For those who have never been here before, this will probably be the most exciting and exciting trip of your life! Overnight in tents in the small village of Askole.
Day 6-12: An impressive hike through what we believe to be the most spectacular mountain valley in the world. Overnight stay in a tent. On the first day it goes relatively flat by a very dry and barren landscape up to Jhula on 3100m. On the second day we reach the last small oasis settlement Paiju at about 3500m altitude. There we may have a rest day, which the porters need to prepare for the further way on the Baltorogletscher. On the fourth day we already move on the legendary Baltoroglacier. We reach our camp Urdukas at about 4150m next to the glacier. And right opposite the Trango Towers! An incredibly impressive view! The fifth day leads us past the beautiful Muztagh Tower to our next camp Goro II at about 4200m. Because of the spectacular views the hikes here are very entertaining. You have to force yourself to look at the ground.
On the sixth day we reach the famous Konkordiaplatz at about 4600m, where so many explorers, discoverers and mountaineering legends have already set up camp. All of them have left their traces unmistakably. From here we see two of the most beautiful mountains of this planet Masherbrum and Gasherbrum IV. And also Broad Peak, K2 and Hermann Buhls Schicksalsberg the Chogolisa lie prominently in this stunning 360 degree panorama. On the last day we reach the K2 base camp in the Godwin-Austen glacier.
