Mt. Gasherbrum I (8,080m) is the 11th-highest peak in the world. It is located in the Gilgit Baltistan region of Pakistan. Gasherbrum I is a part of the Gasherbrum massive, located in the Karakoram region of the Himalayas. Gasherbrum is a remote group of high peaks in the Karakoram, located at the northeast end of the 36-mile Baltoro glacier. Mt.G-I is regarded as a bit more challenging than Mt. G-II. Mt. G-II (8035m/ 26362ft) is the 13th highest mountain in the world. G-I and G-II are the most remote 8,000m peaks.
The group forms a semi-circle around its own South Gasherbrum Glacier. A French Expedition led by H. De Segogne made the first attempt in 1936, but they could not climb beyond Camp V at a height of 6797 meters. However, in 1958 an American Expedition led by Nich Clinch made the first ascent of Gasherbrum I. Pete Schoening and Andy Kaufman were the first to reach the summit.
Mt. Gasherbrum II (8,034m) is the 13th-highest peak in the world. It is located in the Gilgit Baltistan region of Pakistan.
Gasherbrum II is a part of the Gasherbrum massive, located in the Karakoram region of the Himalayas. Mt. Gasherbrum is a remote group of high peaks in the Karakoram, Mt. GII. Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum II can be combinedly and climbed in a single season. The name "Gasherbrum" comes from the Balti words, Rgasha meaning "Beautiful" and Brum meaning "Mountain. There are no steep slopes or technical climbing challenges, which makes this the safest and easier peak to climb than other 8000m peaks. This can be taken as the starting 8000m peak for those who are willing to summit all 14 8000m peaks of the world. The southwest ridge is the preferred route to the summit of G II, which involves less amount of risk while climbing.
The traverse of these two beautiful 8,000-meter-high pyramids was made by Reinhold Messner and Hans Kammerlander in 1984. In fact, also for us, Gasherbrum I (known as Hidden Peak) and Gasherbrum II together in one expedition simply make sense: an "easier" and a "medium" 8,000 m peak ascent with the same approach and departure and base camp. Our team is stronger, the service in the base camp is more extensive and our experienced expedition leaders organize the joint logistics. Only from camp 1 at about 6,000m approx. altitude the ascent ways separate. Depending on your skills and interests you can join for G2 or G1 or both 8,000m peaks as part of our expedition.
