A virtual tour of K2 – Climb the Savage Mountain in 3D

K2, Godwin-Austen or the Savage Mountain, is the second highest peak in the world. Only a few hundred have ever succeeded to climb the mountain. Many have perished while attempting to climb or while descending after successful or unsuccessful attempts, which is why it is considered harder to climb than world’s highest peak Mount Everest.

Thanks to Google Earth, you can now summit K2 virtually while sitting in your warm bed. The virtual tour starts in Askole, Skardu, the last valley before K2, and takes you on to the summit of the mighty “Savage” Mount Godwin-Austen.
