After a relaxing day in Skardu yesterday it is back to business. We have all the expedition equipment to unpack, dry and repack before it gets put into storage for next year. Last night we said goodbye to our awesome cook, our fantastic cook boy and our great high altitude porter. This morning Pete, Paul and Di said goodbye to Jake as he tried unsuccessfully to fly to Islamabad and now has 15 hours of overland transport to look forward to.
“The trip was fabulous. K2 blessed us with three days of spectacular views from the moment we arrived at Concordia, the day we walked to K2 BC and almost until we left. This is without a doubt one of the most special places on the planet. For me personally seeing K2 has fulfilled a 35+ year dream. Thank you for helping this adventure and dream come true.”
22nd July – Lee called today to report that the team are all relaxing back in Skardu after a long 7 hour journey. They are tired but in good spirits. For most of the trip they have been walking 7-8 hours a day so they will enjoy the chance to wind down in Islamabad when they fly back there tomorrow.
