Mirza Ali tweets breathtaking pics of his & Samina Baig's K2 expedition

It is the peak of mountaineering season in Pakistan, a welcome change from the havoc that was caused by an attack by militants on Nanga Parbat base camp two years ago.

Mirza Ali (@Mirza_climb), Samina Baig’s brother, (she is the first Pakistani woman to climb Mt Everest) has been tweeting progress of his and his sister’s attempt at K2, the world’s second highest mountain at 8,611 metres.

He also tweeted a picture of portable toilets installed at the Baltoro glacier saying that they were not maintained properly and were very dirty

 

American-British expedition also posts pictures of progress of K2 expedition

Meanwhile, an American-British expedition to climb K2 also posted some breathtaking photographs of its progress on the Internet.

Managed by American mountaineering guide Garrett Madison’s outfit (he has climbed Everest six times and K2 once, among other peaks), the progress of the expedition was posted on Madison Mountaineering’s blog.
