K2 Pakistan

Posted by khubaib Abbasi On 11:53 AM No comments

 K2 is second highest mountain in the world after Mount Everest. It is located in gilgit baltistan. The hight of K2 Mountain is 8611 fits. K2 was discovered in 1856. It is most dangerous mountain in the world. K2 is taken from the first letter of Karakorum, and the number indicates that it was the second peak in the range to be measured. K2 was firstly climbed on July,31 1954 by Italian climbers team lead by Ardito Desio and accompanying him were Lino Lacedelli and Achille Companion. A March 1987 measurement of K2 indicated that it might be higher than Everest, but later that year, Everest was re-measured by a similar method and found to indeed be 778 ft (237m) taller. The peak has now been climbed from almost all ridges. 2 is one of the most difficult 8,000ers with technical climbing, severe weather conditions, and high avalanche danger. As of early 2009, 305 climbers have reached K2's summit, while at least 76 have died. K2 is considered more difficult than Everest for several reasons - not the least being its remote location - several weeks of hiking and trekking to just get to base camp - no tourist busses here! It's average slope is close to 45 degrees, compared to Everest's 23 degrees. The most dangerous
part of Everest is the Khumbu ice fall at its base-the mountain itself is not really that difficult.
