K2 BASE CAMP TREK (AUG 2022)

REGISTER YOUR INTEREST NOW

The ultimate Karakoram glacier trek to the base camp of the world's second highest mountain, K2.


The K2 Base Camp Trek is one of the finest treks in the world, unbeatable in terms of close-up mountain views and proximity to many of the world’s highest peaks. The trekkers will experience, rugged glaciers as they head up to Concordia where the Baltoro and the Godwin-Austen glaciers converge into a beautiful site showing simplicity of ice and rock.

The trekkers will have an opportunity to absorb the unique atmosphere and environment surrounding this unforgettable mountain.

Conditions permitting, we will return via the spectacular Gondogoro La (altitude: 5,500m / 18,045 ft), a dramatic high col that affords further stunning views of not only the Gasherbrum peaks but also Broad Peak, K2 and the Muztagh Tower.

ABOUT THE CAUSE


Our Children of the World campaign rebuilds young lives by supporting and strengthening local communities to protect children facing the gravest injustices.

Working in some of the harshest environments you can imagine, we have been able to rescue thousands of children from the street where abuse and exploitation was all they have known. We understand that every country and community is different and our projects are designed to synchronise with the society norms, culture and government policies.

 

In Pakistan, we are supporting children who are involved in child labour in Peshawar and brothel children in Lahore. Our social mobilisers encourage them to join our informal education centres where we ensure their education and psychosocial wellbeing.

In Bangladesh, we have been rescuing street children since 2014. We have a permanent transitional shelter in Dhaka and also have regular “Schools under the Sky” in busy ferry terminals like Sadarghat which are informal schools aiming to give street children a basic education.
