Trip Overview

Broad Peak 8047m Expedition with Himalayan Alpine Adventure is one of the four 8000 meter peaks in Pakistan. Broad Peak is located in a tight cluster in the upper reaches of the Baltoro Glacier, which is the principal access to that part of the Karakorum. Mount Broad Peak has the distinction of being in the same valley as the popular Mount K2. Broad Peak is one of the most spectacular peaks in the world.
Well, the Broad Peak Base Camp is just a short 2 hour walk away from Concordia. Actually, Concordia is a picturesque site of highway interchange where several glaciers merge into the Baltoro. Interestingly, the Broad Peak Base Camp is just a couple hours from K2 Base Camp. Broad Peak is so named for the immense bulk of the Peak. Broad Peak is locally known as Falchen Kangri which means Omnipotent.
The climb to Broad Peak will not be especially steep, but the remoteness of the setting will make this an especially rewarding experience for every nature lover and adventure seeker travelers. During the climb, we will be setting up three camps on the mountain beyond base camp. Our route to the summit involves the climb through a rock gully to Camp I 6000m and then by following a large snow face, we reach Camp II 6500m and final Camp III 7200m. This will help you for proper acclimatization with the high altitude. We make the summit from Camp III.
We start this expedition with the briefing and government formalities in Islamabad. Then, we fly to the mountain village called Skardu. Actually, Skardu is the parting point of civilization where we will be accommodated in a hotel. We then follow the drive to Askole which is the last village of the valley. Well, Askole is the beginning of the trek to the base camp and each night we camp out as we travel up the valley with our Balti porters. We then climb the respective camps we have set up to scale the summit.
