Gasherbrum 1: The hidden peak
Explore Karakorum’s hidden gem
Gasherbrum I, also popular as the Hidden Peak, is located at 8,080 meters above sea level in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan.
The mountain is nestled beautifully between labyrinths of high peaks in the Karakorum Mountain range. Gasherbrum I boasts the most difficult topography, and it is the tallest of the series of 6 Gasherbrum peaks in the vicinity.
In 1936, veteran mountaineer H . De Segogne led a team of French mountaineers to attempt Gasherbrum I, but he was faced with failure. However, Nich Clinch and his team of American climbers became the pioneer to summit the peak in 1958.
The route to the base camp of Gasherbrum I begins from Skardu. You’d find yourself cruising across Shigar Valley and then trekking across the Baltoro glacier to finally arrive at the base camp. Gasherbrum I’s climbing period starts in June and ends in August.
