Gasherbrum 1 8068m

Originally named K5 by the Colonial Great Trigonometric Survey of India, Gasherbrum I was dubbed ‘the Hidden Peak’ by Victorian mountaineers because of its extreme remoteness. The name however, still seems appropriate to this day. Gasherbrum I, the highest promontory of the Gasherbrum Massif, is still one of the least-known of the 8,000ers, and is rarely climbed to this day. Even on the established routes, there’s a feeling that you’re breaking new ground here - making a first-class guiding team more essential than ever.
