‘DRIVE 2 CLIMB 2 SKI K2’
ADVENTURER and extreme sportsman Mike Horn has driven from Switzerland through eastern Europe and central Asia to Pakistan, traversing 12 countries and 10 640 kilometres in 15 days — and that’s only to get to the start of the real challenge.
Horn is transporting two mountaineers, Fred Roux and Köbi Reichen, to the mountain K2 in an expedition they called “Drive 2 Climb 2 Ski K2”.
The trio will climb the world’s second-highest mountain — the 8 611-metre K2 — and then plan to be the world’s first mountaineers to mainly ski down again.
The aim of the expedition is to draw attention to the most remote regions of the world and the beauty of this planet.
“Normally I do not use vehicles on my adventures. But this time the Mercedes-Benz G-Class … is my perfect, motorised alter ego,” said Horn in his capacity as a Mercedes-Benz Brand Ambassador. Follow the journey online at #DrivenToExplore.
