    However if you want to join the trek to Basecamp with the climbers please contact us and sign up for the trek below.
    If your dream is to climb K2 or Everest 1 day but you don't feel ready yet, contact us and we can plan what you need to do to get there.

  • What training is included before we leave?

    1 weekend in the UAE in January is provided for members to get to know each other and hike the great trails here.
    2 technical sessions, each half day are provided free of charge in the UAE that cover all the skills necessary before you go.

  • Can we join the group and just trek to K2 Basecamp?

    Absolutely, the whole K2 Basecamp Trek is about 16 days, Islamabad to Islamabad.
    You are guided all the way.
    Contact us for a special discount code to sign up for the trek and the exact itinerary.

  • What level of experience do I need to sign up for the summit?

    We insist that you have climbed at least 1 8000m peak. This does not need to be with us.
    You must be conversant and knowledgeable about the expedition process and technical climbing.
    If you are concerned about this please contact us and we can advise on how to go about this.
    It is not an obstacle and although more experience will definitely help you, there is a saying "The mountain does not know how much experience you have". This applies both ways. All of our trips are run with safety at the forefront.
    Applicants for the K2 expedition should be fully conversant with mountaineering techniques and have a proven high altitude climbing experience of 8000m. Although fixed ropes will be used where appropriate, expedition members must have the ability to climb mixed ground of AD or equivalent standard and be adequately self-sufficient to move between and to live in high mountain camps un-aided or supervised.
    We can help you gain the necessary experience.

  • Can I contact you and meet up before we sign up?

    Please do and infact we would prefer to meet in person before you sign up with us.

  • How long is the trip?

    Approximatley 50-60 days.
    We climb Broad Peak first and it is useful acclimatisation. We then rest and are ready for K2. This minimises the time we are on K2 .
    We arrive in Islamabad in mid / early June each year to ensure we are ready for any windows of opportunity with the weather.
    A slow acclimatisation is essential and increases summit success.
    There are a number of rotations up and down the mountain during this period and this amount of time allows for any illnesses and unforeseen incidents.

  • Is it safe?

    Climbing and mountaineering are inherently dangerous sports and should be performed only with the proper instruction and supervision of an experienced guide
    We work on the premise that the inherent risks of outdoor activities and mountain climbing can be in part identified and mitigated by information, training, interesting gear and knowledge gained in part, through the experiences of others.
    Although many people have now climbed Everest and K2 , the mountain and its potential dangers are undiminished. Reaching the summit late in the day can be a fatal error and our guides will ensure that sensible timings are adhered to. The aim of our expedition will be to get as many team members as possible to the summit. However, this will not be to the detriment of safety. Safety will govern all decision making on the mountain and will be based on the sound mountaineering judgement of our highly experienced expedition leader.

  • Can you take me on other mountains before K2?

    Yes. We are a professional and established mountaineering company. Whatever your level of experience we can provide adventures in the mountains.
    We have hikes and climbs in the UAE and all over the world from Argentina to Russia and Pakistan.
    We will eventually add them here but in the meantime contact us for your customised path to the roof of the world.

  • Can you tell me more details about the climb?

    THE CLIMB
    K2

    The standard route of ascent is the Abruzzi Spur, used by 75% of all climbers, located on the Pakistani side.
    It was first attempted by Prince Luigi Amedeo, Duke of the Abruzzi in 1909. This is the peak's southeast ridge, rising above the Godwin-Austen Glacier. The spur proper begins at an altitude of 5,400 metres where Advanced Base Camp is usually placed. The route follows an alternating series of rock ribs, snow/ice fields, and some technical rock climbing on two famous features, "House's Chimney" and the "Black Pyramid." Above the Black Pyramid, dangerously exposed and difficult to navigate slopes lead to the easily visible "Shoulder", and thence to the summit. The last major obstacle is a narrow couloir known as the "Bottleneck", which places climbers dangerously close to a wall of seracs that form an ice cliff to the east of the summit.

    BROAD PEAK
    Many teams today use the moderate climbing on Broad Peak to acclimitize for a rapid alpine style ascent of K2. The ma

  • Do you have a recommended list of equipment?

    When you sign up we arrange a personal meeting and go through everything that you will need. You will have climbed before and have some equipment. Our connections with retailers will give you a discount and ensure you look good and are safe.
    • Ice axe
    • Crampons
    • 2*Four season sleeping bag for base camp use and high camps
    • Harness
    • Jumar/ascender
    • 3 x tape slings
    • 2 x screwgate karabiners
    • Descender/abseil device
    • Prussic loops
    • Plastic mountaineering boots and Neoprene overboots
    • Down suit or duvet/salopette combination
    We can provide assistance with obtaining equipment not normally stocked by retail outlets. Some items of equipment are available for hire from us but, for this expedition, we strongly recommend that you purchase your own personal equipment and test it before departure.

  • Who will be my leader?

    Sean is your western guide.
    He has lived in Dubai for 12 years and splits his time between here and the Pyrenees.
    He has led 5 expeditions to the summit of Everest and 15 expeditions to mountains over 8000m as well as many around the globe.
    If we employ further western guides they will be qualified and experienced mountain guides or mountaineering instructors.
    We also ensure that all of our Sherpas have a good track record of mountaineering at high altitudes.
    Our lead Sherpa has summited Everest 12 times and K2 twice.

    Whilst qualifications and experience are essential requirements, we also make sure that our Sherpas have the right temperament to lead an expedition comprised of individuals who have a range of previous experience and expectations. To that end, we aim to provide a staff (and clients ) who will make the expedition both successful and enjoyable throughout.
    All of our staff are personally known to us, having normally worked several expeditions for us previously.

  • What about acclimatisation?

    To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and so maximize their chance of success, the expedition will be nearly 8weeks long. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at base camp (5,500m) is half that at sea level. On the summit, it is only one third. A thorough programme of acclimatization is built into the itinerary, which consists of regulated height gains, followed by descent and rest. Before the final ascent to the summit, there will be an opportunity for climbers to descend to one of the many teahouses below base camp for a good rest in preparation for the toughest stage of the expedition, the climb to the summit.
    We also have home base acclimatisation units that can be bought or hired at additional cost.

  • Do you have references or previous clients that I can speak to?

    Of course.
    This works in our favor as we love our clients and our clients love us.
    Contact us.

  • The price for the expedition is high?

    The average price to climb K2 and Broad Peak safely and supported is now 80 000 USD and can range to 120 000 USD for luxury packages that include unlimited oxygen, western chefs at basecamp and 2 sherpas for 1 client.
    We are based in the middle of this range but do not take shortcuts on safety . We keep the maximum size of the group to 6 climbers ensuring that Sean is in contact at every moment with each of them.
    Our basecamp reflects this.
    It is quiet, peaceful and a learning place.
    This closed bubble also helps prevent illnesses from spreading as they will in a large basecamp.
    Would you rather be with 20 other climbers?

  • Is there a discount available?

    Everything is priced to provide the best possible service.

    We can provide a discount for -

    clients who book multiple trips (such as Everest, Elbrus, Kilimanjaro or Aconcagua)
