It is an eight-thousand-meter Chogori (8611 meters above sea level), also called K2. There are more than 40 mountains with a height of more than 7000 meters on the territory of the country. This makes Pakistan a popular destination for mountaineers. The climbing to eight-thousand-meters mountains is more extreme tourism than climbing. Chogori is considered a technically more difficult peak than Everest. In addition to the skill of athletes and guides, weather conditions and the probability of avalanches are also important. No cases of climbing to the top in winter have yet been recorded. Chogori follows just behind Annapurna, the world's most dangerous peak in terms of death rates.
