    Concordia & K2

    Excellent trek in a magnificent landscape. I rated "very good" only because hotel accommodation was disappointing but hopefully this is being addressed for future trips

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    There were many, but reaching Concordia - I didn't go to k2 basecamp but still think Concordia would be the highlight

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Sara was brilliant - fun to be with, and gave excellent suppport and advice to trekkers and staff alike

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Get as fit as you can possibly be in preparation for the terrain you will be walking on - it's tough, but well worth effort and concentration needed

    Memorable trek to the legendary Savage Mountain

    It takes a large team to support 14 trekkers in their ambition to walk to K2 base camp over the 58km Baltoro glacier. With no habitation and unforgiving terrain everything must be carried in by mule or on the backs of porters. This trek makes it possible for ordinary people to walk in the footsteps of the great mountaineers and experience the magnificence of K2 close up.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Visiting the historic Art Gilkey memorial at the foot of K2 after a long and challenging walk in was unforgettable. So many plaques to fallen mountaineers, in a peaceful yet hostile setting. How many non climbers get to experience this special place?

    What did you think of your group leader?

    We were in safe hands with Sara who led from the back in more ways than one. She invisibly managed logistics, liaised with our local team and supported us through illness to help us all achieve our best trek. Her respect for our porters and the environment was also very evident.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    This is accurately described as a tough trek. Most walking days are long and the glacier terrain is difficult with potential river crossings. You might find it to be the most challenging trek you have ever done so previous similar experience will help. Keep hydrated and take it steady to help acclimatisation.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Pakistan has been off limits to trekking groups for many years. This is one of the world’s great treks and it is presently uncrowded and reasonably pristine. Now is the time to go!

    The trek of a lifetime

    It's absolutely amazing that you can walk for 2 weeks in such an unique place without seeing any other groups (there one just another one). Beautiful scenery, tough terrain, good food and amazing local staff.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Urdukus and Concordia

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Sara is fantastic. She's always on top of things, which is essential for a tour leader on this trip. Her medical knowledge came really handy for a few people on our group. Her relationship with the locals, and her involvement in local projects is very inspirational.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Book this trip!

    Tough but worth the effort.

    This trek is rated as tough and don't under-estimate it. The nature of walking on the glacier makes estimating the route and hence timings difficult so expect long days with tough terrain. Having said that the views are magnificent and the sense of achievement will make it all worthwhile.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Arriving at Concordia and looking down the valley at K2 was awe inspiring and emotional. The weather was very kind to us and K2 was revealed in all it's glory. The welcome we received from the people of Islamabad was also inspirational . People were so pleased to welcome western tourists and went out of their way to do so.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Sara Bull worked tirelessly to ensure we all had a safe and enjoyable trip. She nursed us through 'stomach upsets', encouraged us when self doubt crept in and got us safely across rivers and landslips. The rest of the team deserve mention as well, with excellent food, well managed camping sites and a happy and industrious band of porters.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Read the trip notes carefully. You will need stout footwear, the ground underfoot is hard on the feet. You might need warm clothing at some point but take cool loose clothing for most of the walk - it is hot and the trek is strenuous.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    In my opinion this trek is tougher than Everest Base Camp and the Annapurna Circuit but well worth the effort. It's dirty, dusty, hot and tiring, and you might well get an upset stomach. But embrace all of this and enjoy the trek of a lifetime with views that will take your breath away.

    Hard walks bring great rewards

    This is a hard but doable walk that rewards you with enough views for a life time. The fitter you are the more you can enjoy. K2 and Concordia are unbelievable. Sara Bull and the guides are professional and as well as ensuring you are safe give lots of encouragement. A trek of a lifetime.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing Gilkey memorial and meeting climbers who reached the summit of K2

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Sara Bull and her team are top guides and all work,from cooks upwards, to make it happen for you.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Get as fit as you can. Buy the biggest hand gel you can. Much of the water you will drink is warm. Most streams are full of mica can clog filters. Think about a filter bottle and watertogo bottle. Bring a bottle of coke from Skardu for the first few days. Tummy bugs are usual...try and avoid.
