Gasherbrum means a glowing wall. There are six Gasherbrum peaks in the Karakorum Mountains. It was Captain Young and his buddies who discovered the Gasherbrum glacier in 1889.

In 1956, members of an Austrian Karakorum expedition boarded the Gasherbrum II (8035 m). The group was led by Fritz Moravec. A base camp was built on the southern Gasherbrum glacier.

Camp 1 was set up at 6005m. Here they had to stay for ten days because of a violent storm. As a result, the expedition team took a large part of their supplies due to an avalanche.

After Fritz Moravec, Josef Larch and Hans Willenpart had set up a few the base camp, they went on and set up a bivouac at 7620m. Despite frostbite in the bivouac, the three reached the summit of Gasherbrum-II on July 8 and returned without any further accident.

Annotation:

The tour outlined here includes travel to and with Basecamp. Likewise the accommodation in the Basecamp. Thus, the mountain can be climbed in alpine style, so autonomous.

Of course it is possible to climb the mountain guided by a guide, with all the planning on the mountain itself, so all camps, catering, group material, etc. For more details, booking options and costs see “Services Optional: Full Service”.

Entire Organisation made by HÖHENBERGSTEIGEN and our very experienced partner Hunza Guides Pakistan. Pro climbers such as Simone Moro, Denis Urubko, David Lama trust and travel with our partner! Highest quality while on the mountain and intense experience = your safety!
