Gondogoro Peak is situated in the Gondogoro Valley, and it presents a good challenge for the accomplished trekker or hill walker seeking a first Karakoram Summit. It is located in the heart of the Karakoram and offers an ascent with little in the way of technical difficulty or objective danger.

Passing through shepherd’s summer camp and the junction of the Gondogoro and Charakusa Rivers, we will cross a wooden bridge to reach Shaieshcho, which is a large shepherd settlement. The next day, we will trek to Dalsangpa, which means “field of flowers”. It is a beautiful campsite at about 4150 m, which lies between two lakes with Masherbrum and the white glacier cascading down from Masherbrum Pass reflecting in the still water.
The panorama from Gondogoro Peak is quite spectacular. Masherbrum (K1), Chogolisa, Hidden Peak (Gasherbrum I / K5), Trinity Peak, Laila Peak and the Gondogoro glacier stretching down the valley can all be seen from the summit. It is even possible to see distant views of the summit of K2.
