Gasherbrum is a mountain range located in the Karakoram section of the Himalayas. The name “Gasherbrum” comes from the local language and means “shining wall”. There are six Gasherbrum peaks, with Gasherbrum 1 (also known as K5 and Hidden Peak) being the highest.
Gasherbrum 1 is the 11th highest peak in the world and is located on the upper reaches of the Baltoro glacier, one of the main access routes to the mountains. It is also one of four 8,000m peaks in a tight cluster on the upper reaches of the Baltoro glacier.
Gasherbrum 2 was climbed in 1956 by members of an Austrian Karakorum expedition. The party set up base camp on the south Gasherbrum glacier, and three members reached the summit on 8 July.
Gasherbrum 3 is the 6th highest peak in Pakistan and 15th in the world ranking. It is completely overlooked in a rush to the 14 8000m peaks. G 3 has had only two ascents, both by the same route, which put seven people on its summit.
Gasherbrum 4 is better known for its unique stylishness and extreme complexity. It has had numerous ascents over the years, with most climbers taking one of two main routes to the summit. Gasherbrum 4 is a popular destination for mountaineers and is considered one of the region’s more challenging peaks.
