The K-2 is the proud asset of Pakistan. Rising to the frightening height of 28,250 feet (8,611 meters) like a pyramid, K-2 is located near the Baltoro Glacier in the extreme north of Baltistan (The little Tibet) just on Sino-Pakistan border. In fact the boundary between the two countries passes the K2. The peak achieved great prominence not only because of the fact that it is the world's second highest peak but also because of the record of many successive attempts made by the mountaineers from various part of the world, for its conquest  

Stretching over about 400 Kilometers/250 miles Karakoram "The Black Mountains" lie in Baltistan, a remote region of Gilgit Baltistan, bordering Tibet and India, present a wealth of opportunities for real adventure travel. Though best known for the world’s second highest peak, colossal pyramid shaped K2, the Karakoram Range is also peppered with unworldly granite spires that stand sentinel over the sweeping glaciers that spill off its central divide. Some as yet unclaimed by the mountaineering fraternity, these monoliths are the hallmark of the region and the sight of them bathed in the mellow light of sunrise or sunset, is simply unforgettable. Since its discovery by Europeans in the early 19th century, explorers, mountaineers and trekkers have marveled at what is the greatest concentration of high peaks and glaciers on earth. Four out of 14 above 8000 m recognized peaks, are located in the Karakoram Range.
