Gasherbrum I (8,068m) Expedition

Gasherbrum in local language means "Beautiful Wall". There are six Gasherbrum Peaks and Gasherbrum I Peak is one them. The Gasherbrum Peaks are in the Karakoram Range. A French expedition led by H. De Segogne made first attempt in 1936, but they could not climb beyond camp five (5) at a height of 6797 Meters. However, in 1958 an American expedition led by Nich Clinch made the first ascent of Gasherbrum I (Hidden Peak) and Schoening and Kaufman were first to reach the summit. The approach route to Base camp starts from Skardu through Shigar Valley and approach trek starts from Askole through Baltoro glacier.
