Last year (2007) in the month of July, two of our sherpas, Tarkey and Jumick, accompanied two South Korean climbers, Mr.Go and Ms.Kim to an expedition to Broad Peak in Pakistan. Their expedition was organized by a local Pakistani agency.
Broad Peak, the 12th highest mountain on Earth, is part of the Gasherbrum massif. It is located about 8 kilometres (5 miles) from K2.
It took the team around 35 days to reach the summit and get back. According to Tarkey, climbing the peak was very difficult and dangerous, as it involved a lot of technical climbing through steep and sharp ridges. View images of the expedition…

The best thing was the walking in the beautiful scenery and nice places to stop for lunch and coffee. The porters and our guide really made the experience so good. We would use your company again and would recommend to other people.
