Link Sar

Part of the Masherbrum mountains in the Karakorum mountain range, Link Sar is a beautiful peak at an elevation of 7,041 meter (or 23100 ft) above sea level. It is in the neighborhood of K7 (6,934m), K6 (7,282m), and the Charakusa Glacier and Kaberi Glacier. These mountains in the Gilgit-Baltistan province of Pakistan are known to be one of the highest and one of the most mesmerizing places in the world. It is safe to say that they are a climbers’ dream; a paradise point for mountaineers and nature lovers alike. The mountains are unspoiled by human existence and all of its glory is preserved. Since 1969, many attempts have been made by mountaineers to reach the summit of the peak but due to its location and structure, it’s a much more difficult journey. The most recent attempt to reach the summit was made by Jon Girffith and Andy Houseman in 2015who reached Link Sar West which is at 6,938 meter after a 2nd attempt in the space of 2 years. Griffith’s health complications during the ascent restricted them from reaching the Main summit and they had to descent. Griffith later said that it was a shame they couldn’t reach the main summit but they would have had to risk running out of blood and the window of pleasant weather they had to descent. The Link Sar Expedition is an ascent to the North West faace of Link Sar and the main summit still to this day remains unexplored. There are two routes for the Link Sar Expedition: Hushe and Kondus Valley. The best time for this expedition is during June, July and August. The Karakorum Mountain Range is a massive chain of mountains across Pakistan and China that hosts one of the greatest mountains of the world. The range is 500km long and 200km wide. 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.
