Gasherbrum means a shining wall. There are six Gasherbrum peaks in the Karakorum Range. It was captain Young husband and his party, which in 1889 discovered Gasherbrum glacier.

In 1956, members of an Austrian Karakorum expedition climbed Gasherbrum-II (8035m/26,361ft). The party was led by Fritz Moravec. It set up a base camp on the south Gasherbrum glacier. Camp-1 was set up at 6,005m/19,700ft. It was here that the party was forced to stay for ten days because of a severe storm. Consequently it lost a large supply store in an avalanche. After setting up a few more camps, Fritz Moravec, Josef larch and Hans Willenpart set up a bivouac below 7,620m/25,000ft. Inspite of frostbites suffered in the bivouac, the three reached the summit of Gasherbrum-II on the 8th July and came back without meeting any further accident.
