Journey to the mountain of my dream: K2

by in Gilgit-Baltistan, Travelogue

I couldn’t have imagined going to k2 base camp, in my wildest dream ever. But with time, I started developing this passion for mountains that initially took me to Himalayas, Hindukush and Karakoram as a tourist and then as a photographer. With time, I started developing this curiosity to explore whats beyond off the road in those mountains which required trekking. I started trekking, from day treks to two and then week long. I went to Rakaposhi base camp, Wakhan Corridor and other small treks, crossed glaciers, wild mountains, forests, rocks, rain and snow which then prepared and motivated me to do k2 this time. The mountain of my wild dreams.

I am all set with the accessories I will need on this trek and I’m tagging along a group, heading towards k2 base camp from July 01 onwards and I hope I come back, safe and sound to share my stories and photos of wilderness.

And I will not have any regret if the wilderness out there takes my life away, and let my tireless body be with the wild mountains forever. This could be my last blog post of life, or could be one of the first of an epic journey.

See you!

    Going face to face with a mighty mountain like K2 can be any adventure lover’s ultimate dream but the one who puts all his strength and passion in place to make his move to the lap of mother nature deserves all the respect and appreciation. I am very sure you are one of them!

    I wish you all the best of luck and pray for your safe and healthy return with tons of memories that are more than food and air for adventure lovers like me. Our thirst for the ultimate is yet to get wild.

    Fi Aman Allah…have fun and come with a lot of pictures and videos :)
