The Drifika Peak is located in Charakusa Glacier, Karakoram, Pakistan. Drifika offers a major challenge for veteran climbers, and is considered one of the hardest climbs below 6500 m in Karakoram. The peak was first climbed by the Japanese expedition team led by Akiya Ishimura in 1978. Drifica is a tough goal. Climbers desiring to conquer the summit will require extreme physical fitness and a variety of mountaineering experience. In addition to the understandable climbing and rope work abilities required, those with a broad background of mountain skills, including flexibility in the face of tough weather, are mainly likely to succeed. It has two faces: south (Nangma valley) and north (Kharidas valley). The south side is favorite for climbing and easy access for its base camp.

There are many smaller peaks to be used for acclimatization, which are very close to base camp of Drifika. The climb is short and straightforward and it lies at a comparatively low altitude.
