Climbing Broad Peak

The spectacular and majestic mountain

Nestled in the Gasherbrum massif at 8,051 meters above sea level, Broad Peak is the 12th highest mountain in the world.

The spectacular and majestic mountain falls in the Karakorum mountain range, around five miles from K2. The mountain has a summit that extends over 1.5 kilometers, hence the name Broad Peak.

Broad Peak has 3 different summits, namely:

  1. Main Summit – 8051 meters
  2. Rocky Summit – 8028 meters
  3. Central Summit – 8011 meters
  4. North Summit – 7490 meters
  5. Kharut Kangri – 6942 meters

An Austrian team comprising four mountaineers first summited Broad Peak in 1957. The team took advantage of the fixed climbing lines arrangement put in place by a German expedition group that failed to summit the peak in 1954. And what’s astonishing is that the Austrian team summited the peak without using oxygen.

If you want to climb K2, first give a shot to Broad Peak for acclimatization purpose. The weather condition to climb Broad Peak is often harsh and the routes are temperately arduous. With all its beauty, charm and white veil, Broad Peak is calling you to embrace it.
