Frequently Asked Questions

The K2 Base Camp Trek is a legendary trek, suitable for those that are physically and mentally fit enough for multi-day trekking in high-altitude. It is within reach of those that are willing to train for the experience of a lifetime.

The K2 base camp itself is well within the reach of most people who have a good standard of hiking fitness. However, training specifically for the trek is essential to prepare you for the particular pitfalls posed by mountain walking. You are strongly advised to seek medical advice before deciding to arrange your trek and before starting a training program, particularly if you have any concerns about your health.

It is sensible to start training as early as possible before your scheduled trek. Conventional exercise routines which build strength, fitness and endurance, such as aerobics and weight-training will be beneficial, particularly if your fitness level is less than desirable. But the best physical preparation is activity which simulates, as far as possible, the demands on your body which will be happening during your ascent to and descent from the K2 base camp. Hiking up and down hills with a weighted backpack is the key to success and doing this once a week building up to carrying 10kgs would be advisable along with a daily stair master and incline treadmill sessions are also very important for a successful training programme.
