Contributor scientik brings us this awesome drone video of Pakistan's K2 mountain.  The country's highest mountain and one its most recognized sites, the Himalayan peak is the world's second highest mountain after Mt. Everest.  With summit elevation of about 8.6k meters (just over 28k ft.) above sea level, the part of the mountain actually sits in China's remote Xinjiang region.  It's a famously dangerous mountain to climb; the ratio of deaths to successful climbs is about 1:4, the highest of any major peak.
