Day 10. Khoburtse to Urdukas (4050m) 2-3 hours.
Today’s trek unlike others is quite short but needs more energy and stamina.

The journey will be a bit tougher because of the ups and downs of the glacial nature which changes very precipitously so precautions are mandatory while trekking is quite crucial for the group of k2 base camp trek.
