Qogir - K 2

Qogir (K2) is the second-highest mountain on Earth. It is located in the Karakoram segment of the Himalayan range, on the border between Gilgit-Baltistan, Northern Pakistan and the Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County of Xinjiang, China. The first serious failed attempt to climb Qogir was undertaken in 1902 by Oscar Eckenstein and Aleister Crowley. An Italian expedition finally succeeded in ascending to the summit of Qogir on July 31, 1954. It is 28250 feet above sea level.
