Here's a short overview of the base camps for K2, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum I, and Gasherbrum II: K2 Base Camp:
K2 is the second-highest mountain in the world with a height of 8611m, located on the China-Pakistan border in the Karakoram Range. The trek to K2 Base Camp typically starts from the village of Askole in Pakistan. The trail passes through panoramic landscapes, including Baltoro Glacier and Concordia, a stunning junction of multiple glaciers. The trek offers aesthetic views of some of the world's highest peaks, including K2 itself. The surroundings are rugged, with icy landscapes and towering peaks. Broad Peak Base Camp:
Broad Peak is also situated in the Karakoram Range, near K2, on the China-Pakistan border. The height of broad peak is 8051m. Broad Peak is known for its distinct pyramid shape, and the base camp provides an excellent vantage point to appreciate the mountain's grandeur. The trek also includes views of K2 and other notable peaks. The trek to Broad Peak Base Camp often follows a similar route as K2 Base Camp. The journey takes you through picturesque valleys and icy terrains, with awe-inspiring views of Broad Peak. Gasherbrum I Base Camp:
Gasherbrum I, also known as Hidden Peak, is part of the Gasherbrum Massif in the Karakoram Range with a height of 8080m above sea level, near the border of Pakistan and China. It is the 11th highest peak in the world, and its base camp provides breathtaking views of the surrounding snow-capped peaks and glaciers. The trek to Gasherbrum I Base Camp typically starts from the village of Askole and follows a similar route to K2 and Broad Peak Base Camps. The journey includes traversing glaciers and ascending to higher altitudes. Gasherbrum II Base Camp:
Gasherbrum II is also part of the Gasherbrum Massif, situated near Gasherbrum I. It is the 13th highest peak in the world with a height of 8035m from the sea level. The trek allows trekkers to witness the beauty of the Karakoram Range and experience the remoteness of the region. The trek to Gasherbrum II Base Camp shares the initial route with the K2 and Broad Peak treks, diverging as you approach the Gasherbrum Massif. The trail takes you through challenging terrains and high-altitude landscapes.
