    Remarkable photos. The mountain climbing is obvious and we've all seen pictures of these mountains.

    It's only when you see photos, though, on stunningly clear days from DOWN in the green valleys looking up that you REALLY understand the power of these mountains.

    I spend a lot of time in Montana flyfishing and was gratified to learn of some tremendous brown trout fishing in SWAT. Sadly, I'd lose my head fishing there now. Photos revealed to me WHY the British (I presume)transplanted trout. The region was spectacular.

    So too the photos here. It's not the mountains that necessarily struck a familiar tone but the green gorgeous valleys below. I could have been in Yellowstone or Idaho but with mountains that dwarf our Rockies.

    Gorgeous photos. Thank you.:)

    If you're a trout fan, you can Visit Naran which is in "Kaghan Valley" of the Northern areas. My favourite hill station for trout fishing. It's very close to lake saif-ul-maluk, which is probably the most beautiful lake on the face of the earth. Along with that, the ENTIRE Northern area region is safe to travel and every season LOTS of mountaineers and tourists visit these places. ALL of that (The pictures), is available there. Hope to catch you there some day ;)

    Dangers of climbing K2

    Video - K2 'a nasty piece of work' - Sydney Morning Herald

    K2 is ranked 2nd deadliest mountain in the world in terms of mountaineering

    by wikipedia

    K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth (after Mount Everest). With a peak elevation of 8,611 metres (28,251 ft), K2 is part of the Karakoram segment of the Himalayan range, and is located in the Northern Areas of Pakistan, on the border[1] between Pakistan's northern territories,[2] and the Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County of Xinjiang, China.[3] K2 is known as the Savage Mountain due to the difficulty of ascent and the fact that for every four people who reach the summit, one dies trying. Among the Eight-thousanders, K2 has the second-highest climbing mortality rate after Annapurna.

    Climbing routes and difficulties

    There are a number of routes on K2, of somewhat different character, but they all share some key difficulties. First, of course, is the extreme high altitude and resulting lack of oxygen: there is only one-third as much oxygen available to a climber on the summit of K2 as there is at sea level.[35] Second is the propensity of the mountain to experience extreme storms of several days' duration, which have resulted in many of the deaths on the peak. Third is the steep, exposed, and committing nature of all routes on the mountain, which makes retreat more difficult, especially during a storm. Despite many tries there has been no successful ascent during the winter.

Chogolisa has several peaks, the highest on the SW face (Chogolisa I) rises to 7,665 metres (25,147 ft.).
