K2 climbers try to master the art of cooking the perfect 'chapati'

South African-born Swiss explorer and adventurer, Mike Horn, is currently in Pakistan in a bid to conquer the second highest mountain in the world, K2.

The climb is likely to be one of the more challenging tasks the mountaineer will endure in his life, but it is a unique competition that seems to be getting the better of Horn. During the expedition, Horn and his group of explorers take a break from a hard day of tackling the K2, "the mountain of our dreams", and take part in a hilarious 'chapati' competition.
