Gasherbrum I Expedition Karakoram
Gasherbrum I expedition registration is now open for summer and winter. We are offering both, full board or Base camp logistic services for mountaineers and alpinists. Hunza Guides also offers guided and non-guided expeditions.
Gasherbrum I also known as Hidden Peak or K5 is the 11th highest peak on Earth. It is located on the border of China-Pakistan. Gasherbrum-I is part of the Gasherbrum massif located in the Karakorum region of the Himalaya. Gasherbrum is often claimed to mean Shining Wall, presumably a reference to the highly visible face of the neighboring peak Gasherbrum IV, but in fact, it comes from “rgasha” (beautiful) + “brum” (mountain) in Balti, hence it actually means “beautiful mountain.”
Gasherbrum-I was first climbed on July 5, 1958, by Pete Schoening and Andy Kauffman of an eight-man American expedition led by Nicholas B. Clinch. Richard K. Irvin, Tom Nevison, Tom McCormack, Bob Swift, and Gil Roberts were also members of the team.
