Gasherbrum IV is the 17th highest mountain on earth and the 6th highest in pakistan is one of the peaks in the Gasherbrum-massif.The Gasherbrum’s are a remote group of peaks located at the northeastern end of the baltoro glacier in the Karakoram Range. The massif contains three of the world’s 8,000 metre peaks (if one includes broad peak). Gasherbrum is often claimed to mean “shining wall”, presumably a reference to the highly visible west face of gasherbrum-iv; but in fact, it comes from “rgasha” (beautiful) and “brum” (mountain) in balti, hence it actually means “beautiful mountain.
Gasherbrum means “beautiful wall”. This refers to 3,050m/10,000ft pale limestone walls on the great trapeze shaped gasherbrum iv peak. There are six gasherbrum peaks in the karakoram range. It was captain young husband and his party which in 1889 discovered gasherbrum-glacier. it was in 1958 that a strong italian expedition led by riccardo cassin climbed gasherbrum-iv peak 7925m/ 26,000ft through north ridge, after over-coming great climbing difficulties. it was the mountaineers like walter bonatti and carlo mauri who successfully reached its top.
