Reaching the conjunction of God win Austin glacier, which ascends from k2and baltoro glacier calls ‘’concordia’’4700metrs.Lying in the heart of the most heavily glaciated region outside the polar area and densest concentration of peak on earth. You will admire the sheer scale of Golden Thron,Gashabrum IV,Broad Peak,Chhogo Lisa, Mitre peak and K2 is the 2nd highest peak of the world, however this all peaks can seen  at the front of Concordia camp. The trek starts from Skardu drive to Askole, where our staff and porters prepare load for the trek. On the first few stages we cross the snout of the Biafo Glacier, and negotiate the narrow trails above the Braldu River, before ascending the lateral moraine to the Baltoro Glacier. Ascending the glacier we gain unrivalled views of the Karakoram. With the option of stopping at non-traditional campsites wherever possible, we move along the surrounding rock spires, granite towers. Occasionally on and off the baltoro glacier itself, we reach Concordia, from where we have the most spectacular view of some of the World's greatest giants like K2 (8611m), Broad Peak (8048m), Gasherbrum II (8035m), Gasherbrum IV (7925m), Chhogo lisa (7665m) and Golden Throne (7240m) and everything down the Baltoro Valley.
