The Karakoram is the second highest mountain range in the world, but at the same time probably the most dramatic mountain range. Here you will find the second highest mountain in the world, K2, which is far more difficult than Nepal's Mount Everest. In addition to K2, there are a number of other eight- and seven-thousanders.
