The spectacular rock walls of Trango Towers, Lobsang Spires and Uli Biaho stand like monolithic stone sentinels, guarding our route As one progress up the moraines of the vast Baltoro Glacier, the Muztagh Tower (7273m) and Masherbrum (7821m) slowly reveal themselves and in the distance Gasherbrum IV stands tall, providing a taste of what is to come.

K2 Base Camp Trek Distance

From Jula camp site to K2 Base Camp distance is 72 km which, whereas total trekking distance from Concordia is roughly 15 km. At 144km (round trip) this trek seeoms long, but if you consider that on a typical guided trek you will only be walking for 9 out of the 12 days, you’ll see that you will be covering about 15km per day. From Jula one can start  trekking for 6-8 hours per day and  camps at different sites (include camping on  Baltoro glacier) along the way to Concordia to the k2 base camp.

K2 Base Camp Trek Difficulty

People of all ages, shapes and sizes have completed the trek over the years. K2 Base Camp is a hard trek. K2 Base camp at an elevation of  47 00m, with a little bit of preparation and determination you will find that almost anyone can conquer the trek.  with a typical elevation gain per day of 500 – 1000 meters, with at least one day over 1000 metres. An average of 6 to 8 hours per day at altitudes. you should be comfortable hillwalking for 8 hours per day for two days in a row.


Altitude is by far the most challenging aspect of the trek and is what makes it more difficult than your average trek of the same length.

Acute Mountain Sickness and other altitude related illnesses are a serious risk at the sort of altitudes encountered on the trek.

The trek starts after the 6-7 hours drive from Skardu, which stands at just below 3,000m  to Jula through Shigar and Braldo valleys,  and then makes its way up to K2 Base Camp at around 5,400m.

The Closest Airport to Concordia & K2 Base Camp

The closest airport to Concordia & K2 Base Camp is the airport in Skardu. This airport is a national airport, but,

there are no direct flights from anywhere except Islamabad to here, and even those are limited.

Almost all routes to Skardu require a layover in Islamabad, and often due to flight times, an overnight. Also,

flying in and out of this airport can be hair-raising, due to its geographical location high in the mountains.

Flights can only  depart  during the day when visibility is clear and the weather is favorable, so flight delays

and cancellations are common.

Fly to Islamabad

Flights to Islamabad International Airport in Islamabad operate regularly from many around the world

and it is easy to find direct flights. If you are coming from outside of Pakistan, you are definitely stopping in

Islamabad before heading to Skardu. You  will need to go through Immigration and Customs and will need to

retrieve your luggage even if your flight to Skardu is  immediately afterwards.

If your flight lands in Islamabad after 9 AM , you will need to spend the evening in Islamabad. We recommend

heading to the Islamabad city which takes about 35 minutes by taxi as there is no hotel close to airport.

From Islamabad to Skardu

From Islamabad, nonstop flights from Islamabad to Skardu cost anywhere from $100 to $200 and run every day

of the week. The flight is only 50 minutes long. We do recommend booking few weeks before departure as there is

a high demand  and low supply. They seem to cancel flights less often and have more options if you need to move

your flight.

Another way to get to Skardu from Islamabad is by the road. Hop on a bus from Rawalpindi Pirwadah

Bus station to Skardu, There are many buses leaving to Skardu each day on KKH.


From China.

Crossing Khunjerab Pass from Tashkurgan, China to Pakistan (From April to November –

Monday -Friday  except Holidays)

To do this crossing from China, you have to have your visa for Pakistan  in advance by online or through the

embassy consulate in your country. https://vepakistan.com/pakistan-visa-information/ you cannot get a Visa

in Tashkurgan or Kashgar for Pakistan.

Also, there is no stop to purchase food/snacks/drinks along the way (Tashkurgan to Sost); so ensure that you

take enough snacks /food/drink with you to last you this 4+hr drive You can to take a local bus to make this

crossing. You can take a private car, higher in prices to bus but smoother  and quicker. The bus that goes from

China to Pakistan is run by the Xinjiang Province Govt; whereas the bus from Pakistan to China is run by

NATCO, a Pakistani govt service. The bus tickets cannot be bought in advance. You can only purchase them on the

day of travel. The purchase of the  bus ticket and the start of the bus route for this border crossing bus is NOT at the

bus stop in Tashkurgan town. Instead, go to the  Customs/ Immigration building on the outskirts of Tashkurgan

(towards Pakistan, about 2km outside Tashkurgan downtown); and buy the tickets (RMB 225 each, cash) at the

small building at the far end of the parking lot of the Customs/Immigration  building.

The Bus is supposed to leave at 11:30AM Beijing time (9:30AM Uyghur time). However, the departure time can

be late as all travelers have to clear through Chinese Customs and Immigration.. you need to keep your luggage

with you, as the bus is not allowed to be loaded until it is cleared by Chinese Customs.

Note, There is a bathroom on the edge of the parking lot of the Customs building. Once you are

through Customs/Immigration formalities, you cannot go anywhere unescorted (since you have

officially left China). So bathroom visit here once you have cleared Customs/Immigration has to

be escorted to the bathroom at edge of the parking lot. No other restrooms are provided/

Once you board the bus and leave, there is one Chinese soldier will join the bus and escort it all the way to the

Khunjerab Pass Police border post. Along the way, there are multiple Chinese police posts where your passport

/visa will be checked. There are NO bathroom facilities on the way; jungle bathrooms are your only choice.

At the border, the bus simply crosses over into Pakistan without stopping on the Chinese side, crosses over from

right hand drive to left hand drive, and stops on the Pakistani side for a jungle bathroom break, and to take pictures.

In Pakistan, the Pakistan Customs/Immigration is in Sost, which is another 60+kms away. Along the way, you

have  to cross a Khunjerab National Park; for which foreigners are required to pay US$6 each (cash only, US$’s

only). Pakistani and Chinese nationals don’t pay anything. So make sure you have the cash on hand.

In Sost you need get clear through Pakistani Customs and Immigration. Foreigners have a separate line, and takes

much longer than Pakistanis and Chinese nationals. Make sure your Passport+ Visa are totally in order as they check

everything very carefully. We can arranged your pick up from here for the rest of trip in Pakistan.

If you want to travel your own,  you can take a mini bus/van during the day time to Hunza Aliabad, (approximately

takes 2 hours travel time) and from there another bus onward to Gilgit ((approximately takes 3 hours travel time)).

From Gilgit you can catch a van to reach Skardu during day time only which takes 5+ hours.

From India

Cross Wahga Border to Lahore and Islamabad by Bus:-

Take a taxi, rickshaw from Amritsar to Wahga Border. The ride takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to reach Wahga Indian

side. Cross the border by foot. (open from 10 am to 5 pm daily) Walk across the Border, After immigration at

It is sometime possible to catch a glimpse of K2 in the distant before our dramatic landing at Skardu. On arrival we are met by our local staff with jeeps and make the short transfer to the hotel.

SKARDU is the administrative capital of Baltistan and gateway to the high peaks of Northern Pakistan. We have some time to explore the town and enjoy the hustle and bustle in peak season of tourists here. Sightseeing in Skardu and surrounding areas during the day. For those seeking a good overview of Skardu, or a place from which to photograph the sunset, Kharfocho Fort is an ideal spot.

If the flight is unable to operate because of bad weather, we will resort to travel by road on Karakoram Highway (KKH) to Chilas. The drive is compensated by the beautiful scenery along the Karakoram highway and Indus gorges.

The journey on the Karakoram Highway is most exciting and thrilling. It is a monument to the engineering feast and one of the most spectacular roads and the world’s highest metalled border crossing. It connects Pakistan and China stretching over a distance of 1300km between Islamabad and Kashgar, winding through three mountain ranges and following the ancient Silk route along the Indus Valley to the Chinese border at Khunjerab Pass.

We pass through the historical town of Taxila, beautiful hill station of Abbottabad, quake affected lush green towns of Mansehra, Shinkiari and finally meet the great Indus on Thakot Bridge. From there onward the road snails along the bank of the Indus with contrasting landscape after every two kilometers.

We pass through Besham, Dassu, Komila and Shatial to arrive at Chilas with many rock carvings and inscriptions along the way left by Chinese pilgrims and ancient travelers of 5th century A.D. Chilas was on the ancient caravan trail over the Babusar Pass into India. The view after crossing the Rai kot Bridge of Nanga Parbat is without any parallel. Standing at around 1,000 m. you see a mountain which rises to above 8,000 m! This is the largest land escarpment in the world. This is also where the three greatest mountain ranges meet; Himalaya, Hindukush and Karakoram.

After breakfast we will go for De-briefing at Ministry of Tourism in Skardu. Late morning fly to Islamabad. With clear skies we will be able to board a plane and be back at our hotel in Islamabad in 45 minutes. Today we will spend sightseeing around Islamabad and Rawalpindi. For those who want to escape the heat of the city a very pleasant excursion is up to the former British hill station at Murree. The faded remnants of the town’s colonial past can be seen in its gable-roofed buildings and small Anglican churchyard. This excursion is not included in the trip price but if any member of the group wish to make this journey a private vehicle and driver can be hired locally for a very modest sum.
If the weather is not so favorable and the flight doesn’t come, then we will have to drive the Karakoram Highway to Rawalpindi through the narrow gorge of the Rondu valley along Indus River to Karakoram Highway at Junction Point of three largest congregation of mountains(i.e Karakoram, Hindukush and Himalaya). After a brief stop here we leave on the Karakoram Highway on KKH to Chilas. From Chilas depending upon the road condition and preferrence, either continue on KKH to Besham in Indus Kohistan or to Naran Kaghan valley via Naran Chilas road via captivating and enthralling landscape of Babusar valley's zigzag road winding through terraced filed, fruit laden orchard and above Babusar pass at a height of 4145 m. The Valley extends for 155 km rising from an elevation of 2,134 meters to its highest point, the Babusar Pass, at 4,145 meters. Before Karakoram Highway was opened in 1978, the only road access to Gilgit was through Kaghan Valley. Kaghan valley is a very beautiful & attractive valley. That’s why it is called virtual paradise, unbelievably in pristine state and still unspoiled by the human. You’ll find the Himalayan peaks hidden with clouds or snow, somewhere you’ll find the beautiful fairy tale lakes, which will attract you toward them, and you might decide not to leave this at any cost.Take a rest at the pass enjoying the scenic beauty around before descending down to Lulusar lake.

Lulu Sar Lake which is wreathed in blue and gold wild flowers, and is the main source of river Kunhar. Near Gittidas is the 11,000 feet high Lulusar Lake out of which river Kunhar issues anew with redoubled strength to flow down the valley first as placid blue stream and then a roaring torrent until it joins the Jhelum. Lulusar has very enchanting beauty and its view remains in the mind of tourist for a long time. The is surrounded by snowcapped hills whose purple and white forms are reflected in the green-blue waters of the silent lake, making it one of the most beautiful spots in the valley. Take a rest at Lulusar lake and drive down to Naran Kaghan stopping at Gittidas, Batakundi for scenic photo ops. These are numerous scenic places, sheer, snow capped mountains ascending from deep valleys, lush alpine meadows are carpeted by colorful wildflowers and dazzling fruits. Terraced villages dot this monumental terrain, supported by traditional farming methods and lifestyles that have changed little over the centuries.
