Gasherbrum IV (K4 ) is the17th highest mountain on Earth and the 6th highest in Pakistan. It is one of the peaks in the Gasherbrum massif and its Base Camp is near by Broad Peak . The Gasherbrum are a remote group of peaks located at the northeastern end of the Baltoro Glacier in the Karakoram range of the Himalaya. The massif contains three of the world’s 8,000 metre peaks (if one includes Broad Peak) . Gasherbrum is often claimed to mean “Shining Wall”, presumably a reference to the highly visible west face of Gasherbrum IV; but in fact, it comes from “rgasha” (beautiful) and “brum” (mountain) in Balti, hence it actually means “beautiful mountain.

Masherbrum or K1 is the highest peak of Masherbrum group lies in the range of Karakoram. It’s located in Hushe village is of district Ghangche Baltistan.The access of Base camp is quite easy as it take two days to Base Camp from Hushe. It is a large and striking peak, which is somewhat overshadowed by the nearby 8,000 meters (26,000 ft) peaks of the main range of the Karakoram which includes four of the fourteen Eight-thou sanders, namely K2, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak and Gasherbrum II. The Masherbrum Mountains lie to the south of the Baltoro Glacier and the main range of the Karakoram lies to the north of the Baltoro. The main range is the continental divide of southern Asia. Rivers to the south flow into the Arabian Sea. Rivers to the north flow to the Yellow Sea. The Baltoro Glacier is the route most commonly used to access the 8000m peaks of the Karakoram, and many trekkers also travel on the Baltoro. Masherbrum also lies at the north end of the Hushe Valley, which serves as the southern approach to the peak. The first attempt was made by James Waller and his party in 1938 but deep snow forced them to surrender at an altitude of 7600 meters. In 1960, a Pak-American Expedition led by Dr. George Bell reached the summit. The successful climbers include Willis Unsoiled, George Bell, and Nick Clinch of USA and Captain Javed Akhter of Pakistan Army.

The peak is located in the Rakaposhi and Haramosh massif near Barpu and Garumbar glaciers. Its highest is 7027m/ 23,0555ft. In 1892 a large expedition of W.M. Conway went to the area to explore the glacier situated around the peak. The expedition thereafter crossed Nushik pass, which it claims is 5,273m high, and descended on kero Lungma glacier and Arandu. As regards Nushik pass, modern maps indicate its height as 4,990m. The peak was however, climbed in 1878, from the south ridge, by Japan Hoshi-to-Arashi (star and storm) Club expedition which was led by Nakamura. The Reiho Alpine Club expedition of Japan also climbed it in the area and both approached the peak from Chogolungma glacier.

Latok (I, 7145,II,7108,III,6949,IV, 6456) group is a small cluster of dramatic rock peaks in the Panmah Muztagh, part of the central Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan. They lie just to the east of the Ogre group, dominated by Baintha Brakk. To the immediate south of the Latok group lies the Baintha Lukpar Glacier, a small tributary of the Biafo Glacier, one of the main glaciers of the Karakoram. On the north side of the group lies the chocti Glaciers.

The steep North Ridge of Latok I, 2,500 m (8,200 ft) high, is a notorious unclimbed route: it was first attempted, by the American climbers Jim Donini Michael Kennedy, George Lowe, and Jeff Lowe. The lightweight style of this climb was widely admired, despite the lack of a summit.

Latok II saw its first ascent in 1977, by an Italian group led by Arturo Bergameschi. (This was the first successful ascent in the group.) They climbed the southeast face of the peak, and second summit was in 1997.
The first ascent of Latok III came in 1979, when a Japanese team under the leadership of Yoji Teranishi climbed the Southwest Ridge route. They climbed the Southwest Ridge, and the summit party were Teranishi, Kazushige Takami, and Sakae Mori.
