Mount K2, also known as Godwin Austen, Ketu and Chhogori, is located on the border of Pakistan and China, in the Karakorum mountain range. K2 Mountain, which is recorded as the second highest mountain in the world after Mount Everest with a length of 8,611 meters, is one of the most difficult mountains to climb. Many mountaineers wanted to climb K2 Mountain, but they were not successful.
Mount K2 is a mountain known for killing helping people more than climbers. These people, who are in charge of helping the mountaineers and carrying the necessary items, work on this mountain because they are very low-income and needy people, and every four climbers have one assistant, but the helpers often lose their lives while doing this job. Since one helper for every four climbers lost his life, even climbing to K2 Mountain was asked to be stopped, but the mountaineers did not give up their passion. The deaths experienced while climbing Mount K2 have decreased in recent years thanks to the development of technology and the experiences of mountaineers. The first successful climb to K2 Mountain was carried out in 1954 by Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni.
