Gasherbrum 1 8,080 meters (26,509 feet)

Details

Gasherbrum I also called Hidden Peak and is a mountain in the Karakoram range. Gasherbrum I is located on the border between Pakistan and China. It has an elevation of 8,080 meters (26,509 feet) and is the 11th-highest mountain in the world. Gasherbrum I is famous for its challenging climbing conditions, unforeseeable weather, and technical difficulties, making it a great objective for experienced mountaineers. The peak's dramatic pyramid shape and its remote location contribute to its charm, attracting adventurers and climbers from around the world to attempt the demanding ascent. The Gasherbrum massif comprises several other notable peaks, including Gasherbrum II, Gasherbrum III, and Gasherbrum IV, collectively making this region a significant destination for high-altitude mountaineering. Gasherbrum I was first climbed in 1958 by a team of American and Pakistani climbers led by Nicholas Clinch. The team climbed via the west ridge of the mountain and reached the summit on July 5, 1958. Since then, there have been several successful ascents of Gasherbrum I, via various routes on the mountain. Gasherbrum I is known for its impressive size and steep, stony appearance. The mountain is part of the "eight-thousanders," a group of 14 peaks above 8,000 meters (26,247 feet) in elevation.
