IN THIS PAGE YOU WILL LEARN SOME OF THE FACTS ABOUT THE K2 MOUNTAIN LOCATED IN BORDER OF PAKISTAN AND CHINA!!!
This mountain is so remote, lying more than 65 miles of rugged mountain terrain from the nearest village, that it had no name.
Instead it was given surveyor's designation (K for Karakorum Mountains), and a number, based on intial guess that it was the second highest
peak in the range. Once within a region nominally controlled by British India, K2 stands near Afghanistan on the border between Pakistan and
China, in an area most closely related by history to Kashmir. K2 Mountain is a very colorful corner of the world in which to embark on an adventure.
