The K2 Basecamp Trek is one of the most incredible trekking routes in the world. Each day is a journey along the harsh Baltoro Glacier with 7000m and 8000m peaks towering over visitors on either side. The trek reaches the K2 Basecamp halfway through the journey, passing Broad Peak and Gasherbrum II in the process. For a full guide of my experience on the trek, you can read my article TREKKING TO K2 BASECAMP.
These are a collection of my favorite images from the K2 Basecamp Trek. I carried with me a DJI Mavic Pro 2 Drone, Sony A7rii with a lens collection including a 16-35mm f4, 100-400mm f4-5.6, 24-105mm f4, and a 20mm f1.8. For a full list of the gear, I use you can check out my article about the ‘What’s in my Camera Backpack‘ article.
We were lucky enough to have six days of incredible clear weather before a snowstorm came through and covered the entire region in a blanket of snow for three nights in a row. The total trek was 160km in distance with 9000m of vertical gain over 12 days of trekking. I couldn’t have asked for better conditions on our journey and hope you enjoy these images from K2 Basecamp Trek.
