About

Before 1987 Mount K2 was officially the tallest mountain in the world due to an inaccurate measurement made by George Wallerstein. Since then Mount Everest has been climbed by more than 5000 people but K2 still holds its position in terms of difficulty and danger. In 2017 the very first Bolivian expedition will try to make their dreams come true and bring the national flag to the top of the most relentless mountain in the world. To reduce the expedition's cost our team is looking for outdoor enthusiasts and climbers to join the trekking part of the route. Trekking part takes up to 21 days round-trip from Islamabad to the K2 Base Camp, located at the 5100 m. Anyone who is keen please send a message to Jose Callisaya (expedition leader).... Read more
