Gondogoro trek 5: Twelve kilometers between Goro II. camp and Concordia by air equal more than six hours long walk along the glacier covered with a layer of rubble.

Unbelievably hard carriers belong to the local atmosphere. Everyone must admire their incredible stamina, knowledge of the terrain and also lousy equipment in comparison with western tourists.
