K2 is the second highest mountain in the world standing at 8,611 metres (28,251 ft) above sea level; the name K2 is derived from the notation used by the Great Trigonometrical Survey of India. It lies at the very heart of the Baltoro Mustagh in Karakoram Himalaya in North West Pakistan at the head of the Godwin-Austen Glacier. This image was taken in the early morning from a campsite at Concordia, a name given to a location at the confluence of the Baltoro and Godwin-Austen Glaciers that offers an unobstructed view of several of the Karaokram 8,000 metre peaks.
