Concordia is the name for the confluence of the Baltoro Glacier and the Godwin-Austen Glacier.

The name coming from the similarity to the glacial confluence Concordia 

in the Bernese Oberland region of the Swiss Alps.

Around Concordia are clustered some of the highest peaks in the world

including four of the world's fourteen "eight-thousanders".

Concordia offers breathtaking views and short hikes to several major base camps:-

 K2, Broad Peak and the Gasherbrums.
