Will K2 be the same again the next time I am at Concordia?

Location: K2 , Pakistan (35° 44′ 0″ N, 76° 31′ 0″ E)
Date: 10 July 2007; 7.30am
Camera: Canon 400D with Sigma 17-70/f2.8-4.5

I can boast with a little confidence that there are many places which I have been to that many people will only dreamed about. Predominantly I would list the high-attitude trekking to places such as Everest Base Camp, Concordia/K2 Base Camp, various places in Tibet and remote China and Ladakh/Kashmir. In fact I would love to go back to some of these places again for a couple of reasons:

(1) these places are no longer the same- most are more developed and lose their characters such as parts of (then) remote China, and permanent and irreversible changes to the landscape and environment wrought by climactic changes such as the Himalayas; and

(2) these places are so beautiful beyond descriptions and such a valuable experience that I like to bring the people that I loved, such as my wife and kid, to go enjoy them with me.

Hence, I made a promise to myself that I will trek to the Everest and Concordia Base Camps again, this time bringing my loved ones with me.

You're right, those special places do change each time they're visited. Hope I can go just one time, though!
