K2 - Mountain, Pakistan
The K2 region of Pakistan is one of the most remote and mountainous places in the world. It is a vast desert of huge rock walls, glaciers and the some of the highest mountains in the world.
At 8611m, K2 is the second highest point on earth, and the world's largest pyramid. It is the only mountain over 8,0000m high to retain it's original surveyor's symbol and was first climbed by an Italian expedition in 1954.The peak has now been climbed from almost all ridges. Demand to climb it from different, newly identified and difficult routes is on the increase. This is because the peak has yet to be climbed for as many times as its elder sister, the Everest. The local name of K2 is Chogori, which in Balti language means, The King of Mountains. This name is little known to the outside world. It is therefore desirable, that, the present name - K2 is used: It is, however, beneficient to popularize the local name which so succinctly conveys the hugeness of this gigantic mountain. K2 has variously been described as the "awesome", "killer" and "savage" mountain. This is because of the massiveness of its size and some unsuccessful attempts, made upon it, by various expedition parties, including Americans who apperently have made quite a few attempts on it.
You better cross-post it on other travel boards as well..
Moreover, some fellow trekkers were planning the same itinerary as yours and they are in touch with a Skardu based agency
and I think that agency has got some trekkers for July so you could drop them a message at
I wish you all the luck,
