treks Description

Gasherbrum means "Shining Wall". Highest (8,068m/26,470ft) among the six peaks of the huge massif, it has been called ‘Hidden Peak’ by nineteenth century British explorer Conway. There are six Gasherbrum Peaks, Hidden peak is the highest one among them. It is world’s eleventh highest peak with challenging technical difficulties at lower level of ascent. Its first part of climb is steep snow and ice with rocks then easy climb on snow and mixed slops. The most common route is North West Face. 

The first successful ascend was made on July 5, 1958 by an American Expedition led by Mr. Nick Clinch when his two fellow climbers Pete Schoening and Andy Kauffman reached on the summit for the first time.
