Karakoram in Turkish means Black Rubble. In 1856 Capt. Montgomerie surveyed a number of peaks in the Baltoro region of the Karakoram from a distance of about 200km. He noted a cluster of high peaks and named them with the prefix (K) for Karakoram K1, K2 and K3.

The route to K2 goes through the famous Shigar Valley and Baltoro Glacier region of Baltistan. There are several high peaks, which are situated in this world\’s largest temperate zone glacier. Only the highest or more prominent ones have been named or climbed. An incredible nineteen of these peaks in the Baltoro region tower over 7600m while four of them are 8000ers.


K2, the second highest mountain in the world often known as Savage Mountain towers majestically above Concordia with the sweeping Godwin Austin Glacier offering an ice highway towards its Base Camp.
