Rakaposhi Peak Expedition Nagar Valley

Rakaposhi is 11th highest in Pakistan and ranking 27th in World. The possibility of options to climb this peak from all sides lured the first Dutch expedition in summer 1938. Similarly in 1947 Tilman launched from the Kunti glicier but could not summit it. In 1954 six climbers including few scientists decided to climb it through the southwest spur but due to worst condition of weather kept away from summit.In 1958 the British, Pakistan joint expedition tried to defeat and some extent succeeded after getting frost bitten feet

Expedition to Rakaposhi Peak Nagar Valley Gilgit Baltistan Pakistan

Rakaposhi, is one of the most magnificent peak found in the world today. It is situated near the town of Gilgit and with a height of 7,788m/25,551ft it is easily climbable from all sides. The peak dominates the horizon and is constantly visible from the Karakoram Highway. It looks so beautiful that at first glance inspires charm and lures an onlooker to be in its abode. Accessing the peak is quite easy, which only adds to its attraction. The peak is surrounded by famous glaciers/valleys like Barpu, Biro, Bagrot and Pisan. In 1892, a large expedition of W.M. Conway, a British traveler and mountaineer explored the Barpu valley. The party also explored the nearby Bagrot valley. In order to visit the valley, Conway had to travel from Srinagar to Gilgit over Burzil pass. In those days this was the only identified and permissible route to enter the area

    It was so great and unbeatable experience of my Life while climbing Rakaposhi in July 2019. Well managed base camp, foods and all services at the basecamp and high camp were so satisfying. I felt safe even in the bad weather, people of Tour De Rakaposhi are Expert in Mountaineering.
