Can you see Everest from the summit of K2?

    Though I did not find any personal testimony from climbers, I have worked out the following math to answer your question. K2 is 28,251 feet tall and Mount Everest is 29,028 feet tall with 817.85 miles in between them. From the height of K2, the human eye can see 331.540 km, or 1,022,112 feet to the horizon. On a day with perfect visibility and no obstruction because these are the two highest mountains on earth you could hypothetically see Everest from K2. However, K2 is also notorious for its bad weather and often wind alone can limit visibility to just a couple meters.
