Baintha peak

Baintha Brakk is a peak in the Panmah Muztagh (sub-range of Karakoram Mountains) in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. It is at an elevation of 7,285 metres (23,901 ft) and rises above the Biafo Glacier (one of the biggest glaciers in the region). The first ascent to baintha brakk peak was carried out in 1977, whereas the 2nd one took twenty-four years. It has been known to be one of the most difficult mountains to climb and is also referred to as ‘The Ogre’ due to its extremely rocky structure and steepness. It is because of this complex terrain which is why it is hard to climb. Baintha Brakk lies in the Panmah Muztagh which is a subrange of the Karakoram near the Shigar village, Gilgit-Baltistan. This is the heart of the Karakoram mountains. 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. It is 500km long and 200km wide and connects with Hindukush and Himalaya Mountains at few points. This sub-range also includes mountains such as Latok I, II and III which also share the same rock structure and steep nature. Baintha Brakk Expedition is a journey through the Karakoram Mountains of Pakistan with mesmerizing views of the mighty mountains and glaciers which are also one of the largest and highest in the world. The trek starts from Askole via Skardu district which is the nearest town to the mountains. It is to be noted that the Panmah Muztagh peaks are the hardest in the region and only recommended for highly experienced climbers.
