It stands tall at 8,611m(8.611km).The first 6000m of Mt.K2 is full of steep rocks while the remaining portion is a huge snow sea. Out of many attempts to climb this mountain, only few have succeeded.

Even though Mt.Everest is taller, the hard and the bitter weather of Mt.K2 has earned it the title of ‘Mountaineer’s mountain’ or the ‘King of the mountains’.
