K2 and YOU

This trip isn’t for the light-hearted, it’s a challenging journey for our truly intrepid trekkers – and for those looking to do something remarkable for the less fortunate.

Registration fee: £1,000     

Fundraising Goal £7,500

The K2 Base Camp Trek is one of the greatest treks you will ever embark on. The Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan holds a rugged beauty beyond compare and when you’re stood at the base of K2 after 9 days of trekking along rocky mountain trails, it is then that you can truly claim to be a globe-trotting intrepid trekker!

Choose between the standard K2 base camp trek or continue via the K2 Gondogora La circuit for extreme trekkers who want to be rewarded by experiencing breath-taking views of all four 8000ers in the Baltoro region (K2, Gasherbrum 1 and 2, Broad Peaks) and other stunning peaks.

To qualify for this trip, participants must have previous experience of high-altitude trekking, in excess of 4,000 metres above sea level. Prior use of crampons and an ice axe will be preferable for anyone attempting the Gondogoro La pass. You will be asked to provide details of your experience during the registration process. If you don't meet this criteria, we may be able to help you. Please get in touch to discuss available training opportunities.

Your hiking adventure with Team Orange begins in Islamabad, Pakistan’s lively capital city, before catching a flight north to Skardu and starting your journey towards K2 Base Camp with us. This is an extreme challenge that brings with it an average of 7-8 hours of trekking most days, but rewards your hard work with towering Himalayan summits, wild mountain scenery and the rich natural beauty of Pakistan.

You’ll cross the Baltoro glacier, hike 5,100m to K2 and experience trekking over Gondogoro La on this trip, as well as getting some personal time in Islamabad, Skardu and Askole (time permitting). This trip isn’t just a passing achievement, it’s a life-changing experience for you and those you help through our Emergency Response appeal.

K2 Base Camp is waiting to be conquered, all we need is you to do it! Book your place today to start this rewarding journey.
