The 27th highest peak in the world is Rakaposhi which has a height of 7,788 meters (25,551 ft). Rakaposhi Peak is also called "Queen of the Karakoram" due to its magnificently beautiful and well-known. Rakaposhi was first climbed in 1958 by a team of British climbers led by Mike Banks. The team consisted of Tom Patey, Joe Brown, and Ian McNaught-Davis. Since Rakaposhi was the first peak in the Karakoram range above 7,600 meters (24,930 feet) to be successfully climbed, it was regarded as a significant accomplishment in the history of mountaineering. Rakaposhi has been ascended numerous times since the initial ascent, and the climbing routes are now well-established. The mountain's steep and stony appearance makes it a challenging climb, requiring climbers to possess a high level of technical skill and experience. Rakaposhi is a favorite location for hikers and trekkers and there are different trekking routes that go to the base camp of Rakaposhi Peak. Adventure seekers mostly choose the trek to Rakaposhi base camp because it provides breathtaking views of the mountain and its surrounding glaciers.
