Hide and seek by k2

by in Gilgit-Baltistan

Trekking after 7 days, crossing through harsh tarrain and difficult baltoro glacier, i finially reached Concordia where you get to view four 8000+ peaks that includes world’s second highest mountain “K2″.

I was excited all the way from Skardu to Concordia, just to see a glimpse of that mighty mountain that have been playing with my thoughts and dreams for such a long time.

Upon reaching Concordia, i tried to concentrate on my west side to see if i can view the peak. The peak was hiding behind dark clouds. This saddened me. I wanted to see that mountain. I came all the way up there just to see a gimplse of it.

I found myself a big stone to sit and waited aslocal guides told me that this mountain plays hide and seek, will sneak out its peak from the clouds for a moment and will hide again.

I pointed my camera towards the peak, and waited for the right moment to click. It took almost 3 hours to the peak to show its first glimpse.

That day, we couldn’t see the whole k2. But it became clear the next day. But that’s true that this mountain loves to play hide n seek.
