Gasherbrum I is one to the “least popular” of the 8000 meter peaks. It still has less than 200 ascents and is in tenth spot on the ascent-list for the 8000 meter peaks. It is also one of the peaks with least deaths, but this probably has to do with the fact that only really experienced mountaineers try a peak as difficult at Gasherbrum I. The most common way to climb the peak is to attack on the western side and all routes here leads to “The Japanese Couloir”, which is located on top of the north-west face. The first ascent (1958) was made via Spur Peak and then via the long south east ridge to the summit.
Gasherbrum II (8035m) is one of the absorbing peaks among the Karakorum. It is an impressive, ideal peak to start high mountain climbing and the best trek in the world. Although climb is not as difficult as Hidden Peak, but its climbing still provides a perfect mountaineering experience.
