Select Country to List Mountains
Located on the border with Pakistan and the People's Republic of China, K2 Mountain is the 2nd highest mountain in the world. The second highest mountain in the world after Everest with an altitude of 8611 meters is K2's Ever Godwin Austin 86. Although it ranks second in terms of height, it ranks first in terms of difficulty. For this reason, the summit of K2 Mountain is called the "holy summit" for climbers. K2 Mountain is so cruel that one out of every four people trying to come out has died there. The main reason why the K2 Mountain is so difficult is that it is very steep. Diction means both climbing difficulty and more dew and rock fall.
