Tour Details

Mashabrum Peak 7,821m

Mashabrum is at 7,821m (25,659 ft). It is the 22nd highest mountain in the world and the 9th highest in Pakistan. It was the first mapped peak in the Karakorum mountain range, hence the designation “K1” . Although Masherbrum ( Mashabrum fromly know as K1 is located in the Ghanche Distric, “ Brum” means mountain in balti language & “Masher” meaning a muzzle- loader, due to characteristic curvature of its summit as viewed from Baltoro Glacier.

Masherbrum is the highest peak of the Mashrbrum Mountains range, a sub range of the Karakorum range, it is a large and striking peak, which is somewhat overshadowed by the nearby 8000 m (26,000 ft) peaks of the main range of the Karakorum which includes four of the fourteen Enght- thousanders namely K-2, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak and Gasherbrum II.

The Masherbrum mountains lie to the south of the Baltoro Glacier and the main range of the Karakorum 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 into the Tarim Basin.

In 1856, Thomas Montgomerie, a British Royal Engineers lieutenant, noticed a tall mountain in the Karakorum and called it K1 (denoting peak 1 of the Karakorum’s to the local people of the area, It is known as Masherbrum. Masherbrum was reconnoitered in 1911, by Dr William H, Workman and his wife Mrs, Fanny Bullock Workman. It was first attempted in 1938 from the south, the attempt failed just short of the summit. After two more failed expeditions, in 1955 and 1957, Masherbrum was first climbed in 1960 by George Irving Bell and Willi Unsoeld, part o f an American- Pakistani expedition led by Nick Clinch. They succeeded in climbing the southeast face route that had stymied the earlier parties.
