Gasherbrum means “Shining Wall” in local language and the name probably origins. There are six Gasherbrum Peaks. Gasherbrum 1 also known as K5 and Hidden Peak, a name given by William Martin Conway in 1892 in reference to its extreme remoteness, It is the highest peak among them. It is also the 11th highest peak in the world and is the second highest in the Karakorum Range. It is one of the four 8,000m peaks located in a tight cluster on the upper reaches of the Baltoro glacier, the main access route to the mountains which cuts through the center of the Karakorum Range
Gashebrum II lies at the head of the Baltoro Glacier amongst the greatest concentration of high mountains in the world.It was first climbed by S.Larche,E. Moravee and H.Willenpart in 1956.This shining mountain is generally considered the easiest of the eight thousand meter peaks. The Austrians were the first to make its summit back in 1956. All the existing five toutes to the peak begin in the Gashebrum valley. The Base Camp lies at the junction between the stunning South Gasherbum and Abruzzi glaciers. The mountain itself is pyramid-sharped and is as beautiful as they come. Our approach to the Base Cam is via Skardu town and a week’s trek on the Baltoro glacier.
