Mitre peak from Vigne glacier

Originally uploaded by Asif Saeed (LUDUS)
I was viewing the gallery of this gentleman by the name of Asif Saeed, a member of our Pakistani community who is at, and was amazed to see such an arresting sight. This mountain is called Mitre peak and is perhaps a known site to lots of trekkers going to K-2 base camp. Evidently it is also one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Wikipedia lists its height as 6,010 m (19,718 ft).

This expedition survived a snow storm sort of a scare. But that's another story and as more photographs are uploaded by the various trekker friends of mine, I will surely share them with you all.
