Successful stories in previous years

HST Adventures has designed complete K2 expedition package combined with Everest, Amadablam and K2. To complete these three expeditions we normally offer two years of package. In terms of operating K2 expedition it is run in summer, Amadablam in autumn and spring. For those who are physically strong and as experienced mountaineering can complete this expedition within a year. In every expedition team we provide one international mountain guide as an expedition leader along with at least one climbing guide for each member and one can hire extra Sherpa too.

 

Climbing Expedition to K2 is a combination of thrills and adventure. K2 peak has surroundings around by the Baltoro Glacier with the colorful Karakorum valleys of Skardu and Askoli. The trekking period from Skardu to the Base Camp is always remarkable parts of the expedition. In addition to this, cultures, natural scenic views and beautiful lakes, rivers don’t miss to amaze the climbers. Also, you will get chance to experience walking into the ancients of Silk Route, Baltistan and Shigar valleys. Similarly, one can say this region is more similar to the Upper Mustang of Nepal.

 

HST Adventures Base Camp management is designed with sincerity keeping in mind about hygiene in foods at the base camp and the high camp, along with best dining, and kitchen and sleeping arrangements. Solar charging system, generator, and Internet are also provided at the Base Camp. Our company is associated with international companies like Kinetic 6 who provide satellite phones and radio, and Summit Oxygen for all the oxygen supplies at high altitude. For the successful summit every climber should climb Everest or Amadablam in Nepal.
