Episode 187: Concordia

There She Is. The team is nearly finished with the approach trek to Broad Peak and K2 and finally reach the camp at Concordia.

Concordia is a hub of sorts in the region as it sits at the confluence of the Baltoro Glacier and Godwin-Austen Glacier, between the base camps of several 8000m and 7000m peaks including K2 (8611m), Gasherbrum I (8080m), Broad Peak (8051) and Gasherbrum II (8034m). That’s right, from Concordia you can gaze upon four 8000m peaks in the immediate vicinity while stradelling two of the world’s largest glaciers!

Speaking of viewing peaks, from their brief visit at Concordia, the team is able to get a rare, cloudless and unobstructed view of their objectives, K2 and Broad Peak. It’s an amazing sight and the weather is so astonishingly perfect, they wish they were up on K2’s ┬ásummit ridge NOW!
