Gasherbrum I Gilgit Baltistan, surveyed as K5 and also known as Hidden Peak, is the 11th highest mountain in the world at 8,080 metres (26,510 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan. Gasherbrum I is part of the Gasherbrum massif, located in the Karakoram region of the Himalaya. Gasherbrum is often claimed to mean “Shining Wall”.

Gasherbrum I was designated K5 (meaning the 5th peak of the Karakoram)

Gasherbrum is a remote group of high peaks in the Karakoram, located at the northeast end of the 36-mile Baltoro glacier. The group forms a semi-circle around its own South Gasherbrum Glacier. The peaks are sharp rock pyramids with rugged ridges and steep, towering walls. The highest peak, Gasherbrum I Gilgit Baltistan, is also known as Hidden Peak, a name given by William Martin Conway in 1892 in reference to its extreme remoteness. Three of the Gasherbrum massif’s high peaks are over 8,000 meters. Gasherbrum I is the world’s eleventh highest peak, Broad Peak is the twelfth highest, and Gasherbrum II is the thirteenth-highest.

We were the only team in 2016 to make Gasherbrum I and II summits.
we arrived at base camp on the 13th of July and we were stuck in base camp for more than a week because of bad weather.
so, most of the team gave up the Gasherbrum I and II to climb.
we left base camp on 8th August and we were the last team.

The Gasherbrum massif is a remote group of peaks located at the northeastern end of the Baltoro Glacier in the Karakoram Range of the Himalaya. The massif contains 2 of the world’s 8,000-metre peaks. Gasherbrum is often claimed to mean “Shining Wall”, presumably a reference to the highly visible face of Gasherbrum IV; but in fact, it comes from “rgasha” (beautiful) + “Brum” (mountain) in Balti, hence it actually means “beautiful mountain.” Gasherbrum I, surveyed as K5 and also known as Hidden Peak, is the 11th highest mountain in the world at 8,080 metres (26,510 ft) above sea level. It is located on the Pakistan–Chinese border and Xinjiang region of China. Gasherbrum I is part of the Gasherbrum massif, located in the Karakoram region of the Himalaya.
