K2 isn’t nicknamed “the savage mountain” for nothing. The world’s second highest peak is arguably the toughest challenge in mountaineering. For a long time it was considered unconquerable, and most climbers will still leave at least 60 days for a summit bid. At Elite Exped, we understand that such timescales are often incompatible with modern, professional careers, which is why we launched our fast-track K2 expedition. We can help you conquer the savage mountain in half the time.
Climb K2 like a record breaker
Our leaders Nimsdai, Mingma David and Mingma Tenzi will be forever associated with K2 because of their world first winter ascent in January 2021. But both have a history with the world’s second highest mountain that stretches back before that remarkable feat.
Mingma David led the rope-fixing team on K2 twice, leading to successful summits both times, and of course, Nimsdai summited the savage mountain as part of his ‘Project Possible’ push in 2019, when he climbed all 14 x 8,000ers in record time. Elite Exped’s K2 fast-track expedition plan is based on the one he successfully implemented, taking just 29-days from arrival in Islamabad to boarding your flight home.
