K 2 "Highest Peak in The Pakistan"

 Most of the high peaks in Pakistan are in Karakoram range, the highest of which is K2 also known as Mount Godowin Austin. It  is the second-highest mountain on Earth after Mount Everest. With a peak elevation of 8,611 meters(28,251 ft). It is located on the border between the Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County of Xinjiang, China, and  in Gilgit-Baltistan of Pakistan. The word k2
is derived from notation used by the
 Great Trigonometric Survey and sketched two prominent peaks by k1 and k2. K2 is known as the Savage Mountain due to the difficulty of ascent and the 2nd highest fatality rate among the "eight thousanders" for those who climb it and it has never been climbed in winter. An Italian expedition finally succeeded in ascending to the summit of K2 on July 31, 1954. K2 is a much more difficult and dangerous climb, due in part to its more inclement weather and comparatively greater height from base to peak. There are many routes to access but Abruzzi Spur and North Ridge is mostly taken to ascent.
