All roads lead to K2.
Mike Horn is not a man to do things by halves. The daring sportsman set off from his home in Switzerland in mid-May for the first section of his adventure. Challenge number one: to drive all the way to Pakistan, home of K2, the world’s second-highest peak.
To do this, he is travelling overland through ten countries in a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the high-performance off-road vehicle that Mike calls “the motorised version of me”. Not content with getting this far, he will then climb K2 before skiing down its technical faces.
