Broad Peak mountain from Concordia camp site

Broad Peak is the 12th highest mountain in the world at 8, 051 metres (26, 414 ft) above sea level.
Broad Peak is part of the Gasherbrum massif in Baltistan on the border of Pakistan and China. It is located in the Karakoram mountain range about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) from K2. It has a summit over 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) long, thus Broad Peak'.
Concordia camp site. Concordia is the name for the confluence of the mighty Baltoro Glacier and the Godwin-Austen Glacier, in the heart of the Karakoram range of Pakistan. It is located in Baltistan region of Pakistan. The name was applied by European explorers, and comes from this location's similarity to a glacial confluence, also named Concordia, in the Bernese Oberland, part of the Central Alps. Around Concordia are clustered some of the highest peaks in the world. Four of the world's fourteen eight-thousanders are in this region, as well as a number of important lower peaks. Concordia offers the region's best place to camp for mountain enthusiasts not involved in climbing. With breathtaking views, it also offers short treks to several important base camps: K2 (5-6 hours), Broad Peak (2-3 hours) and the Gasherbrum I&II (7-8 hours)
