Overview

Paju Peak is the superb peaks among the Karakoram Mountains. It’s Base Camp is very closely, as the Payo Camp is often crowded and noisy Restricted a small tree-lined stream passes through Payo, and tent platforms are carved out all over the hillside.. The tent platforms higher along the stream are quieter with good views. Payo is the last source of wood. Despite kerosene and stoves, and signs urging porters not to cut wood, they do so in order to bake break for the coming days. It was first climbed in 1990 By American, and recently was climbed by Spanish in 2013.
