K2, Broad Peak and Karakoram Trekking and Climbing News

k2 news

Our K2 Broad Peak expedition was a big success!! SummitClimb's Dan Mazur led our our members and Sherpas to reach the summit in all safety. We were very lucky with the weather. Our teams not only led our members, they also helped other teams too. For example, our Sherpas fixed the ropes to K2's summit and plowed a track through deep snow to Broad Peak. Also we rescued a British climber named Rick Allen. His team had left him for dead. Plus, our climbing and trekking team began a new system to supply Askole villagers at K2's trailhead with medicines. We are so proud of everyone and thank all of the members and Sherpas for what they have done and all of the family, sponsors, colleagues, and friends for their support. Please join us for 2019 www.K2Climbing.com , www.BroadPeakClimb.com , and www.K2Trekking.com . Please let us know your questions at info@SummitClimb.com . Thanks and Welcome to Our Team!

Saori and Jangbu at the airport boarding the Skardu flight.  Missing You Steve!
 
Today we were up early and helped Steve to catch his flight home. We miss you Steve! Then we went had a yummy breakfast at the guesthouse, and drove to the airport, where we boarded a plane to Skardu for an amazing flight past mighty Mount Nanga Parbat. Lets go and climb it! We reached Skardu, at 2228m / 7307 ft, the nearest town to K2, and went for a delicious lunch at this very gorgeous hotel we are staying at, on the banks of the massive Indus River. The views of the surrounding peaks from our hotel are incredible. Oh, sorry, we forgot to mention that yesterday our Sherpas boarded an Islamabad bus with 45 bags of luggage in what was supposed to be a 40 hour journey to Skardu. However, because it is the Eid Holiday here (Happy Eid everyone!!) there were no cars on the road and they whisked up here in just 30 hours, which even included an 8 hour sleep at a hotel enroute!! The weather here in Skardu is pleasant. A few stray clouds in mostly blue skies, with lots of peaks jutting out all round us. There is no wind and the temperature a very springlike 21 degrees C, 70 degrees F. Now a group of members are off to see the sights and tonight we have planned a cultural celebration with our lovely and kind hosts, who have been bending over backward to give us excellent spotlessly clean rooms with fine views, hot showers, and amazing buffet meals. Its going to be tough to leave here!!

16 June - Greetings from the green city of Islamabad. During the last days our members have been arriving. Finally they are all here. We have been enjoying meeting one another, and sharing climbing and trekking stories. We have had some fun evenings out sampling local restaurants. We have even had a bit of sightseeing, visiting the local mosque, and enjoyed a western meal at a shopping mall. The people here are amazingly friendly. Steve twisted his knee while walking around town and two taxi drivers whisked our entire group over to the casualty ER ward at the local hospital, which was extremely clean and tidy and staffed by top professionals. We have enjoyed our time in Islamabad, at our very comfortable guesthouse. Surprisingly, it rained last night, cooling things off nicely.
