The Baltoro Glacier

The Baltoro Glacier, at 62 kilometers long, is one of the longest glaciers outside the polar regions. It is located in Baltistan, in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan, and runs through part of the Karakoram mountain range. The Baltoro Muztagh lies to the north and east of the glacier, while the Masherbrum Mountains lie to the south. At 8,611 m (28,251 ft), K2 is the highest mountain in the region, and three others within 20 km top 8,000 m.

The glacier gives rise to the Shigar River, which is a tributary of the Indus River. Several large tributary glaciers feed the main Baltoro glacier, including the Godwin Austen Glacier, flowing south from K2; the Abruzzi and the various Gasherbrum Glaciers, flowing from the Gasherbrum group of peaks; the Vigne Glacier, flowing from Chogolisa, and the Yermandendu Glacier, flowing from Masherbrum. The confluence of the main Baltoro Glacier with the Godwin Austen Glacier is known as Concordia; this location and K2 base camp are popular trekking destinations.

The trough of this glacier is very wide. Small valley glaciers form icefalls where they meet the trunk glacier. The sidewalls vary from very steep to precipitous. The glacier has carved striations on the surrounding country rocks. Moving ice has formed depressions, which serve as basins for numerous glacial lakes.

The glacier can be approached via the important Balti town of Skardu.

A list of notable peaks adjacent to or near the Baltoro Glacier includes:

K2, 2nd highest of the world at 8611m
Gasherbrum I, 11th highest of the world at 8,080m.
Broad Peak, 12th highest of the world at 8,047m.
Gasherbrum II, 13th highest of the world at 8,035m.
Gasherbrum III, 7,946m. (Often regarded as a subpeak of Gasherbrum II.)
Gasherbrum IV, 17th highest of the world at 7,932m.
Masherbrum (K1), 22nd highest of the world at 7,821m.
Chogolisa, 36th highest of the world at 7,665m.
Muztagh Tower, 7,273m.
Snow Dome, 7,160m.
Biarchedi, 6,781 m
Uli Biaho Tower, 6,417m.
Trango Towers, 6,286m. (Their vertical faces are the world's tallest cliffs.)
Mitre Peak, 6,010m.


Pakistan Mountains Broad Peak
Broad Peak (8,047m) from Concordia
Picture appreciation:

Concordia is the name for the confluence of the Baltoro Glacier and the Godwin-Austen Glacier. The name was applied by European explorers, and comes from this location's similarity to a glacial confluence, also named Concordia, in the Bernese Oberland, part of the Central Alps.

Concordia offers the region's best place to camp for mountain enthusiasts not involved in climbing. With breathtaking views, it also offers short hikes to several important base camps: K2 (three hours), Broad Peak (two hours) and the Gasherbrums (three hours). An alternative exit to returning down the Baltoro Glacier is available by climbing the Gondogoro Pass (5450 meters).
