Broad Peak (8047m)



Broad Peak (8047m) is named for the immense bulk of its peak. It has a strong presence in its environs. Its local name is ‘Falchan Kangri’. Upon arriving in Islamabad, we then fly to a mountain town called Skardu or if the weather is inclement, we travel by road through the Indus gorge to Skardu and the parting point from civilization. Jeeps take us to the road end at Askole, the last village in the valley. Askole is the beginning of the trek to base camp and each night we camp out as we travel up the valley with our Balti porters providing entertainment and color to the otherwise stark and barren countryside.

Our next camp is Paiyu, the last campsite before the beginning of the Baltoro Glacier. Then the route to Broad Peak (8047m) follows the opposite (true left) side of the Baltoro, passing spectacular views of the Trango group, trekking for a further 6 days to reach the base camp. The route involves climbing through a rock gully to Camp I (6000m) then by following a large snow face we reach CII at around 6400m. A final camp is placed at 7400m from where we make the summit bid. The climbing will not be extremely steep but the remoteness of the setting will make this an especially rewarding experience. Whether this is your first 8000m peak or your third, the nature of climbing in this region will have its own unique flavor.
