Diran Peak situated in Minapin Nagar valley, in Rakaposhi and Harmosh mountain regions. It is also one of the easily accessible peaks being lying on the Karakoram Highway. It is a tremendous, fascinating, and most beautiful peak. Diran stands prominently offering a panoramic view to Hunza valley adding to its rugged beauty. The entire ascent is on snow slopes with bare rock only peeping here and there. The South face is dominating the Bagrot valley also visible from Karakoram Highway. This face is a little more difficult yet safer for snow and ice avalanches. The higher slope is smooth but wind-blown. In 1968 Austrian Expedition members summit Diran successfully.
