At the head of the Baltoro Glacier, at the end of one of the world’s most famed mountain walks, lies the heaviest and most remote concentration of high peaks on the planet.
Gasherbrum II is part of the greater Gasherbrum group of 5 peaks, 2 of which soar over 8000m, and is the world’s 13th highest mountain. She is roundly held as one of the most straight-forward and accessible of the fourteen, and climbers on her normal route, if sufficiently resourced and prepared, enjoy reasonable summit rates inclement weather.

It was first climbed on July 8, 1956, by Fritz Moravec, Josef Larch and Hans Willen part of an Austrian expedition. Its total estimated height is 8035 meters.
