  K-2 the last episode


CopyrightęBilly Pierson

K-2, the second highest mountain has been the focus of mountaineering and trekking community this year due to its 50th summit celebrations. The Baltoro region was visited by a large number of trekkers and porters. This may have resulted into degradation of the area and the pollution on a large scale. Mountain Wilderness International in collaboration with Mountain Wilderness Pakistan is sending two expert alpinists/environmentalists from Pakistan to assess the damage caused by the 2004 visitors in the Baltoro Region. The two alpinists will leave Lahore for Skardu in the last week of September to conduct the survey. The report will help in assessing the damage already and now caused.

Mountain Wilderness Pakistan

In Pakistan, Mountain Wilderness Pakistan is active in training the locals for mountain related activites and people from urban areas who are interested purely for the sake of safeguarding the last wild places left on the face of earth. The Mountains are the precious ones being less spoiled.

We have been not only organizing courses for the Liaison Officers that accompany with foreign expeditions, but to guides, porters and even cooks hoping to achieve something in the mountains by educating locals to a level that they can understand to behold their diversity.
