Trekking in the Karakoram Mountains is a wonderful experience, but trekking to Concordia is a journey of lifetime. Baltoro, home of hundreds of peaks, also home of four 8,000 meter peaks; K – 2 (8,611m) (Mountain of Mountains), Broad Peak (8,047m), Gasherbrum – I (8,068m), and Gasherbrum – II (8,035m) The trek is located in the heart of the mighty Karakoram and offers magnificent view of snow – caped mountains.
