This Expedition Gasherbrum 1 8080m Short Version you can only book it here with this program. We use a different path and will not follow the standard trek to basecamp. That is why it takes us only 40 days.
Gasherbrum 1 (also known as Hidden Peak or K5) is the eleventh highest peak in the world and is located on the border between China and Pakistan. Gasherbrum 1 is part of the Gasherbrum massif in the Karakoram region of the Himalayas. Gasherbrum I is often referred to as a “shining wall”, probably an indication of the highly visible area of the neighboring peak Gasherbrum IV; In fact, however, it comes from “rgasha” (beautiful) + “brum” (mountain) in Balti, so it is actually called “beautiful mountain”. Gasherbrum I was designated by Montgomery as K5 (meaning the 5th summit of Karakorum). This happened in 1856, when he first discovered the peaks of the Karakorum more than 200 km away during the Great Trigonometric Survey of India. In 1892, William Martin Conway gave the alternate name Hidden Peak in terms of its extreme remoteness. Expedition Gasherbrum 1 was first boarded by Pete Schoening and Andy Kauffman on July 5, 1958, as members of an eight-man American expedition led by Nicholas B. Clinch. Richard K. Irvin, Tom Nevison, Tom McCormack, Bob Swift and Gil Roberts were also members of the team.
