Photos of the K2 Trek (August 1-27, 2004)

We left Islamabad on Aug. 2 for Baltistan. We arrived in Skardu after a two day drive along the Hindu River, mostly on the Karakoram Highway. Left Skardu on Aug. 6 by jeep to Askoli, where the trek started on August 7

We hiked to Payou and then on the Baltoro glacier to Concordia where we arrived on Aug. 14 (a 70 Km trek). We had beautiful weather! Stayed 5 nights in Concordia. Bad weather forced us to cancel the Gondogoro La part of the trek. Returned to Skardu the same way we came. Slides by Lina Galtieri. Comments? ( ENJOY!!
