K2, Mountain in China-Pakistan border region

K2, also known as Mount Godwin-Austen or Chhogori, is the second highest mountain in the world.

K2 was first summited by an Italian expedition on July 31, 1954.

Referred to as 'Savage Mountain', K2 holds a mythos among mountain climbers due to its extreme difficulty.

The weather on K2 can be highly unpredictable and treacherous. Ensuring adequate preparation before attempting to climb is essential.

Unlike Everest, K2 has never been climbed during winter.
