K2 is a reputed mountain that belongs to the Karakórum mountain range, in the Himalaya between Pakistan and China. With 8,611 meters of altitude, it is second highest mountain in the world after Mount Everest (8,848m), the second-highest mountain on the planet and the most difficult to climb. Mount K2 is also called Mountain Godwin-Austen, Chogori or Ketu; depending on the region. Most people simply refer to it as the “wild mountain”. Along with Annapurna, it is the peak with the highest percentage of fatalities. For every four people who reach the summit, one dies in the attempt. The K2, unlike the Annapurna, has never climbed in winter.

The main feature of K2 is that it is a perfect pyramid, it is the mountain that all children would be able to draw. Although the summit is more than 8,000 meters high, the mountain only rises just over 3,000 meters from the glacial valleys at its base. The K2 is part of an elevated area that includes the Karakórum, the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalayas with the imperial Mount Everest as its roof.

The mountain was first scaled in 1856 by Haversham Godwin-Austen and his team. The two most popular routes to Mount K2 are – the  Abruzzo and the Magic LineWhile Abruzzo is the most commonly used trekking route to ascend the mountain, while Magic Line is possibly the most difficult route of any mountain on the planet. To get an idea, up to 2004, 2,238 climbers had climbed Everest while only 246 to K2. 

The summit of K2 and part of the slopes are covered with large glaciers and with a thick layer of snow, while glaciers strung the foothills of the mountain. The climatic conditions in the upper part are severe and there is a very high risk of avalanches occurring without warning. However, it should be noted that the weather and time in K2 is usually unpredictable, so there is a very high chance of accidents occurring while ascending the mountain. 

As K2 is considered amongst the most dangerous mountains to scale in the whole world, thus it is not recommended to anyone who does not have the sufficient skills and experience climbing high altitude mountains. Scaling of K2 should only be attempted with the proper gear, experienced climbers and above during suitable climates.
