You leave Skardu on the asphalt road to the east. You are in for an adventurous jeep ride (6-7 hours) through wild gorges and over a small pass, further through the Shigar valley to Askole. At the end of the road in the small village of Askole, you will set up your first camp (3,020 m). Overnight tent

Today begins your 6-day trekking tour to Concordia Square (altitude difference approx. 1,600 m). First, you walk left along the Baltoro River through the village of Askole, the last settlement on this route. The route initially runs in a very green valley and keeps you a little breathless. Countless moraines and side glaciers that supply the Baltoro Glacier with ice always require new detours and new decisions. Only the alternation between block fields and moraines is constant. Before you reach Camp Jola (3,218 m), you walk past the glacier tongue of the huge Biafo Glacier (lunch is also held here at Camp Korophon) and walk into a left side valley over a lot of sand. After a total of approx. 8 hours including breaks, you will reach the camp with fixed toilets and sinks. The camp is directly opposite Bakhur Das (5,809 m) which is very impressive in shape.

As always, the tour starts early in the morning around 7:30 am. First, it goes out of the valley again. After about 4 hours you will reach the noon point, Camp Bardumal (3,295 m), via sandy soil. Then it's another 3 hours to the camp in Paju (3,407 m). Along the way, you'll have to hop and jump across the melt water of Paju Peak (6,610m). Gasherbrum 4, Trango Tower, Cathedral Peak, and Broad Peak dominate to the east. Camp Paju is beautifully nestled in the middle of a small oasis with meadows, birches, and poplars. Walking time approx. 7-8 hours / overnight stay in a tent

Free day in Paiju, because the porters have always taken the day to bake bread as provisions for the coming trekking days. Almost like a ritual, people dance around the evening campfire to the rhythmic drum sounds of the Baltis. Overnight tent

After an early start you will reach the Baltoro Glacier in about 1 hour. Now it goes up and down over the Baltoro Glacier, which is loaded with a lot of boulders, rocks, and sand, to Khorburtse (3,816 m). On the left, you will constantly see the Trango Towers and CathedralPeak. Furthermore, you now also have a great free view of the Uli Biaho Peak (6,417 m).

Today is only a comparatively short hike on the program. It goes in two sections over the glacier with "Tote is" (glacier laden with rubble) and otherwise along the edge of the glacier to Camp Urdukas (4,168 m), a beautiful, green campsite, which lies like a viewing platform on the right edge of the glacier. This is also the campsite on solid ground since afterward you only spend the night directly on the glacier ice. Here you can rest in the afternoon and enjoy the tremendous panorama of Paju Rock Towers, Trango Tower, Nameless Tower, Cathedral, and Lobsang. Walking time approx. 3-4 hours / overnight stay in a tent

After about 3.5 hours you will reach the rest area Gore 1 (Bianco Camp) for lunch. After another approx. 2 hours, you arrive at the day's destination Gore 2 on the glacier.

The camp is at 4,319 m. Walking time approx. 6 hours / overnight stay in tent.

After approx. 5.5In hours including breaks you will reach Concordia Square (4,575 m), in the center of the Karakorum. Five glacial streams meet here and within a radius of 15 km, there are 41 peaks over 6,500 m. Most of them are still unclimbed and nameless. Fantastic granite towers, ice, and rock formations invite you to be amazed. Clockwise are the K2, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum 4, Baltoro Kangri, Kondos, SnowDome, Vigne Peaks, Miter, Paju, Crystal Peak, Marble, and Angel Peak.

The snow-capped Chogolisa (Bride Peak), now looming over the Vigne Peaks to the south, is your constant companion. Walking time approx. 4-5 hours / overnight stay in a tent.
