Which is the Highest Mountain in Pakistan – K2

Which is the Highest Mountain in Pakistan? – K2

1: K2

K2 is the first highest mountain peak of Pakistan and overall it is the  2nd highest mountain in the world. The main peak of the mountain is 8,611 meters (28,251 feet). This fascinating/hypnotizing mountain is part of the Karakoram Range located on the border between Gilgit, in Gilgit-Baltistan (Pakistan) and the Tashkurgan Tajik Self-ruling County of Xinjiang (China). It was named K2 in 1852 by a British surveyor named T.G. Montgomerie, with “K” referring to the Karakoram Range and “2” as it was the second highest peak ever recorded. K2 is one of the hardest of the fourteen 8,000 meter mountains, needing/ordering technical climbing, forcing (by law) harsh weather conditions and presenting/causing great threats of suddenly rushes/suddenly flows. As of 2014, over 335 climbers have successfully reached K2’s summit, whereas a minimum of 82 people has died.

Number 2: Nanga Parbat

The Nanga Parbat is the ninth highest mountain in the world. The word Nanga Parbat literally means “Naked Mountain,” and it has three gigantic faces. The main peak is 8,126 meters (26,660 feet) above sea level. The second is the Rakhiot face and the third one is the Diamir face which is rock-thrown in the starting but it changes itself into fields of ice around the Nanga Parbat peak. This third part/section of NangaParbat is also known as the Rupal face, and it is the highest cliff edge in the world. The NangaParbat is also known as the killer mountain because 31 people died while trying to climb the bNanga Parbat before its first rise by the Austrian climber Hermann Buhl in 1953 there have been at least 68 climber deaths on the Nanga Parbat.

Number 3: Gasherbrum

The Gasherbrum is a remote group of people (involved in a battle) of peaks located at the northeastern end of the Baltoro Huge mass of ice in the Karakoram Range of the Himalayas on the border of the Chinese-given Shaksgam Valley and the Gilgit-Baltistan (land area owned or controlled by someone) of Pakistan. This massif contains three of the world’s 8,000-meter peaks. if Broad Peak is also included in it.  He named five of these peaks K1, K2, K3, K4 and K5 where the K represents the Karakoram. Today, K3 is known as Broad Peak, K4 as Gasherbrum II and K5 as Gasherbrum I.

Number 4: Distaghil Sar

The Distaghil Sar is the highest mountain in the Hispar Muztagh, which is a sub-range of the Karakoram mountain range, in Gilgit-Baltistan. It is the fourth highest mountain peak of Pakistan and overall it is the 19th highest mountain peak on earth. The mountain has a 3-kilometer long top ridge above 7400 meters with three clear/separate summits: north-west 7885 meters, central7760 meters and south-east 7696 meters. The Distaghil Sar was first climbed in 1960 by GuntherStarker and Dieser Marchart of an Austrian big, important trip led by Wolfgang Stefan. The big, important trip climbed the western part of the South face and continued over the southwest ridge to the highest summit. Three years earlier, in 1957, an English big, important trip had tried to climb the mountain from the South and the West but failed due to bad weather. (in almost the same way), bad weather blocked a 1959 Swiss attempt over the southeast ridge. The highest, western summit has been scaled twice since in 1980 and 1982 over the original route. Two attempts over the difficult/scary north face, in 1988 and 1998 were unproductive. The eastern summit was first climbed in 1980 by a Polish big, important trip over the east face, and it was re-risen/in power in 1983

Number 5: Khunyang Chhish

Khunyang Chhish or Kunyang Chhish is the second-highest mountain in the Hispar Muztagh, a sub-range of the Karakoram Mountains in Pakistan. Its height is 7823 meters and it is the fifth highest mountain peak of Pakistan and 21st highest in the world. It is a steep, pointed and complex peak; it easily rivals the (a) little higher Distaghil Sar to the North which has a more rounded shape. The first climbing effort on Khunyang Chhish was made in 1962 but the climb was stopped/killed after a huge, sudden flow of snow (or work) on the 18th of July killed two climbers. Their bodies were never recovered. The next attempt was in 1965 but another climber died after the collapse of a narrow ridge at 7,200 meters (23,600 feet). The first rise was very skillful by a Polish team led by Andrzej Zawada in1971. They climbed a long route up the South Ridge of the peak from the Pumari Chhish Huge mass of ice. However, one of their members was killed in a deep crack (sudden unplanned bad event/crash). The second and only other recorded rise climbed the Northwest Spur to the Northridge. Two British climbers, Mark Lowe, and Keith Milne completed this route on July 11, 1988. The route had first been attempted in 1980 and had been attempted again in 1981, 1982, and1987. After four unsuccessful big, important trips, beginning in 2003, the East summit was first rose/climbed up in July 2013 by an Austrian/Swiss team over the South Wall.

Number 6: Broad Peak

Martin Conway, in 1892, introduced the name Broad Peak to the native (to) people who could not agree on how to refer to the summit. The mountain lies on the border between Pakistan andChina. It has a summit of around 8,051 meters in height from the ground. It lies along the western Baltoro huge mass of ice between Gasherbrum IV and Gasherbrum IV. Compared to other mountains in Pakistan, Broad Peak big, important trips think about/believe the summit as an easy climb and over the years teams have had success climbing to the top.
