Muztagh Tower located among the Baltoro is a part of Karakorum Range and has two summits of 7273 m and 7180 m, on the traditional route of K-2 and other 8000 peaks.
It stands between the basins of the Baltoro and Sarpo Laggo glaciers. It’s one of the most spectacular and challenging peaks, which consists of both rock and ice climbing. In 1881, a treaty between Russia and China made complete freedom between two countries. Consequently Russian caravans started bringing goods into eastern Turkistan. The British Empire was not lagging behind the war of shadows. The British army knew this and started surveying the Karakorum in 1887. In 1947, R.C.F. Schomberg visited Sarpo Laggo Glacier and after crossing east Muztagh Pass 5422m, he entered Baltoro Glacier. The first successful expedition reached to the summit of Muztagh Tower West on July 6, 1954 and North East Ridge on July 7, 1954 by British climbers namely John Hartog and Joe Brown.
