K2, the most difficult mountain to climb
The most difficult mountain to climb is nothing more than K2, which belongs to the Karakoram Mountain Range, is 8,611 meters high, and it should be noted that it is the second highest mountain, since the first is Everest.
K2 is located just in front of the Pakistan border, the mountain is also known as "Wild Mountain" as the grade to climb it is quite complicated. According to statistics, for every four people who have reached the summit, one has died trying.
Climbers must prepare themselves before the ascent due to the numerous risks that the path presents, since they must be ready for any contingency such as landslides and avalanches.
The legend that surrounds K2 tells that it has a curse against female climbers, a legend that has been disproved over time, since in addition to the Spanish Edurne Pasabán, other women in the world have proven the falsity of this myth.
K2 has a pyramidal shape, and has always been a great challenge for great climbers, its relief is extremely steep, which means that, if a fall occurs, the climber would continue falling meters and meters down the mountain without stopping.
