Elevation: 7932 meters
It is the 17th highest mountain on Earth and the 6th highest in Pakistan. It is one of the peaks in the Gasherbrum massif.
The Gasherbrums are a remote group of peaks located at the northeastern end of the Baltoro Glacier in the Karakoram range of the Himalaya. The massif contains three of the world’s 8,000 metre peaks (if one includes Broad Peak). Gasherbrum is often claimed to mean “Shining Wall”, presumably a reference to the highly visible west face of Gasherbrum IV; but in fact, it comes from “rgasha” (beautiful) and “brum” (mountain) in Balti, hence it actually means “beautiful mountain.”
If there’s a mountain harder to climb than K2, it’s considered to be Gasherbrum IV. The peak is 7925m and an extremely technical climb. Its sheer rock faces are relentless and the objective dangers are many. On top of that, it’s located in a part of the world where the weather is very unstable.
The impressive mountain is the first of the “big ones” you can see when walking in towards the Baltoro area. It’s located at the intersection where the Baltoro glacier splits and Gasherbum IV is really looming over everything around. There are two main attack routes.
One is directly from relatively low altitude from the Baltoro glacier and the other one is from the huge glacier fields close to camp one of Gasherbrum I, II and III.
