This K2 Base Camp and Kharut Pyramid expedition is a unique offering by Adventure Peaks. The splendid peak of Kharut Pyramid is in a fantastic location directly below the Abruzzi Ridge of K2. We approach via one of the most spectacular treks in the world, as per our K2 Base Camp expedition. The ascent of Kharut Pyramid provides a fine challenge in the most awesome location, overlooked by the almighty K2 and Broad Peak.
Although we are surrounded by the most remote of the Himalayan giants, it is still suitable for those who have experience with ice axe and crampons to Scottish grade 2 or Alpine PD+.
For those who do not wish to ascend the final peak there is the welcome opportunity to relax and enjoy a well deserved rest at K2 Base Camp. From here you can view our summit progress and wonder at the delights of this most inspiring location.

It is vitally important that you have adequate travel insurance for your trip with Adventure Peaks. We recognise the complexity and variety of choice in the insurance market and know that many of you either have your own preferred insurer or have annual multi trip cover in place already. If this is the case, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your Adventure Peaks itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken.
Adventure Peaks do not provide any advice on travel insurance, although it is a requirement of our booking conditions that you have travel insurance which covers the activities which you are likely to be undertaking on your holiday. Cover must include emergency medical, helicopter evacuation, repatriation and rescue expenses.
It is strongly recommended that suitable cancellation insurance is purchased at the time of booking as all deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
