K2 is the second highest summit after Mount Everest, and its ascent and descent are considered much more challenging.
Pakistani army made contact with mountaineers Shehroze Kashif and Fazal Ali and conducted a "high-risk" mission to rescue them.
Remains of Pakistani mountaineering legend Muhammad Ali Sadpara, Iceland's John Snorri and Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile found at world's second-highest peak, but "it is very difficult to bring dead bodies down", officials say.
Ali Sadpara has gone missing on the world's second tallest mountain, K2, along with two other climbers John Snorri of Iceland and Chilean Juan Pablo Mohr. This is a friend's tribute to Sadpara.
Muhammad Ali Sadpara, John Snorri and Juan Pablo Mohr were last seen at what is considered the most difficult part of the climb: a steep and narrow gully just 300m shy of the 8,611m high K2 peak.
A team of Nepali climbers that made the first winter summit of K2, the world’s second tallest peak, arrived back in the country to a heroes' welcome from crowds of well-wishers.
Wearing traditional woollen hats and festooned with garlands, the climbers were received as heroes on the first leg of their journey back home.
Pakistani army helicopter rescues four Italian and two Pakistani climbers stranded at an altitude of around 5,300 metres in northern Ghizer district, a mountaineering worker says, even as a Pakistani climber of the team is killed.
