Unearth the Majesty of K2

K2, the awe-inspiring third instalment of the CIT’s Peaks series, stands tall within the Karakorum Range, claiming its place as the second highest peak on Earth, second only to the mighty Mt. Everest. This coin celebrates K2’s indomitable spirit and its imposing presence that has captivated adventurers since it was first revealed to the world in 1856 by Colonel T.G. Montgomerie of the Survey of India.

Historical Significance and Adventure

K2’s numerical designation highlights its position as the second highest summit in the Karakorum Range. The mountain’s formidable reputation began with the first bold attempt to conquer it in 1902, though success eluded those early climbers. Triumph was finally achieved in 1954 by the Italian expedition led by Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli, who braved ferocious weather to reach the summit via the Abruzzi Ridge on July 31st. Even today, K2 remains a daunting challenge, its perilous storms and treacherous conditions deterring all but the most resolute climbers.
