Trango Tower Expedition

49 DAYS / 48 NIGHTS

Great Trango Tower 6,286 m is one of the most spectacular granite towers in the world; a dream come true for ardent rock climbers. We climb a very straight forward and technically moderate route up the north face from our base camp on the Dunge Glacier. Our trip begins in Islamabad and then onwards by private bus along the Karakoram highway to Skardu. From here we travel via Sport Utility Vehicles and/or jeeps into Askole where we start the 7-day trek into our base camp below the Biaho and the Trango Towers. A fascinating and mesmerizing place with huge granite rock towers reaching thousands of feet high, dropping down to the churning moraine of the Dunge and Trango glaciers. A trek up towards Concordia, near K2 base camp helps us acclimatize for the climb.

The route is mixture of snow and ice and the accent is of moderate grade, with some lower angle rock sections. This is an amazing way to reach the summit of Great Trango, in the shadow of K2! Adventures International director, Scott Woolums was the first person to make the ascent via this route, the third ascent of the mountain’s summit.
