The Unstoppable Force

K6 is one of the tallest mountains in the area, standing at 7282m this peak dominated our views from base camp. It is a truly imposing mountain, even from a kilometre or so away. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to be on the face of this mountain.

Watching these avalanches in real time, they seem to move sedately down the mountain. This belies their destructive power, in fact, they are travelling hundreds of kilometres an hour and will clear anything in their path.
