Paiju Peak

Paiju Peak is a Karakoram Range Mountain at an elevation of 6660 meters (or 21850ft). It is located in the Baltoro region near K-2 and the first Pakistani Expedition to the summit of this peak took place in 1976 led by Lt Col Manzoor Hussain (Retd) of Pakistan Army and famous Pakistani mountaineer, Nazir Sabir. Paiju Expedition starts from Askole via Skardu in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. Skardu is a city in Gilgit-Baltistan and serves as the capital of Skardu district and it is home to one of the highest and largest mountain ranges in the world. The best time for the ascent to the summit is during the Summers of Pakistan between May to August. The journey for this expedition may take just over 40 days but the journey through the highest mountains of the world is still something worth every penny and every step to the top of the peak. The Karakoram Mountain Range is a massive chain of mountains across Pakistan and China that hosts one of the greatest mountains of the world including K2 and Nanga Parbat. It is 500km long and 200km wide and connects with Hindukush and Himalaya Mountains at few points. The Range also hosts many different rivers including the Hunza River and the Indus River. It is now home to many different valleys and people across the region including Skardu, Hunza and Gilgit. Moreover, after the expedition to Paiju Peak, one can trek towards Concordia which is sometimes called the ‘Throne Room of The Mountain Gods’ for the mighty, giant peaks that lie in the region.
