K-2 Expedition 2017


The local name of K-2 is Chogori, which in Balti Language means the king of mountains. This is little known in the outside world. It is therefore, desirable that the present name- K-2-is used. It is, however, desirable to popularize the local name, which so succinctly conveys the hugeness of the mountain.
K-2 has variously been described as “awesome” Killer” and “Savage” Mountain. This is because of massiveness of its size and unsuccessful attempts made on it by various expedition parties, including Americans, who made quite a few attempts on it. K-2 is a rocky mountain up to 6,000m, beyond which it becomes an ocean of snow. K-2 is situated on the Pak-China border in the mighty Karakorum.
