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. But the expended effort is in good weather rewarded by beautiful views of the local giants, glacial formations and vision of amazing sunset in Concordia.

Several meters high nice ice pyramids protruding from rubble field begin to appear over time.
