Muztagh Tower 7,276 meters (23,854 ft)


Muztagh Tower is located in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan and the Karakoram range of the Himalayas. Muztagh Tower is part of the Baltoro Muztagh sub-range and has a height of 7,276 meters (23,854 ft). Muztagh Tower is considered one of the world's most difficult summits to climb due to its rough and steep elevation. The first ascent of Muztagh Tower was made in 1956 by a British expedition which is led by Joe Brown. The team included six climbers, including John Hartog, Tom Patey, and Ian McNaught-Davis. Since Muztagh Tower was one of the first peaks in the Karakoram range of over 7,200 meters (23,620 feet) to be successfully climbed and it was considered an important success in mountaineering history. Numerous climbers attempts have been made to climb Muztagh Tower but very few have been successful. Adventure or Climber needs a lot of technical ability and expertise to attempt the peak's climbing route due to its dangerous difficulty. The route includes icy steep and rock climbing with technical sections that require careful navigation and a high level of physical fitness. Muztagh Tower continues to attract some of the best climbers in the world and many attempts are made to reach the summit every year. There are many trekking tracks that lead to the Muztagh Tower mountain's base and the peak is also a popular destination for hiking and trekking. The trek to Muztagh Tower base camp offers incredible views of the mountain and the nearby glaciers and is most popular choice of adventurers.
