Trekking the Karakoram

For the first time since lockdown, Tom Richardson led a group on a KE Adventure Travel trekking expedition to the Karakoram. The team attempted to cross the Gondogoro La in the Karakoram mountain range, taking in spectacular views of Great Trango, K2 and Masherbrum along the way.
