“Over 6 weeks we have traveled many miles, seen many things and come to the end of the road. Now we walked to K2 basecamp,” he said in a Facebook post here. Mike Horn became famous in 2001 after completing a solo journey around the equator without motorised transport. In 2004 he completed a two-year, 3-month solo circumnavigation of the Arctic Circle.
Over 6 weeks we have traveled many miles, seen many things and come to the end of the road. Now we walked to K2 basecamp.
