10 Nanga Parbat Rakhiot Face, Rakhiot Peak, Silver Saddle, East Peak, Silver Plateau, Summit, North Peaks On Flight From Islamabad To Skardu On the 40-minute flight from Islamabad to Skardu, the captain announces, ‘We'll be flying at a planned altitude of 8,000 metres.’ Perfect I thought, we'll be exactly at the height of Nanga Parbat. The flight starts low key with the stewardesses serving drinks while we bide our time. When the pilot announces ‘Nanga Parbat is immediately ahead on the right’, all hell breaks loose. As one, all the tourists, including me, are up in the aisles, craning their necks, running for the cockpit. The sounds of cameras are everywhere. There it is, within arm’s reach. Nanga Parbat in perfect early morning splendor! After passing by the Diamir Face, we can see Hermann Buhl’s route of first ascent with the Rakhiot Peak leading up to the Silver Saddle between the Nanga Parbat Southeast and East Peaks, and up to the summit with the North Peaks on the right.

08 Skardu Khardong Hill And Kharpocho Fort Reflected In The Indus River The Khardong Hill with the Kharpocho Fort is beautifully reflected in the calm Indus River in Skardu (2286m). Skardu is the district headquarters of Baltistan, situated on the banks of the mighty Indus River, just 8 km (5 miles) above its confluence with the Shigar River. The Indus barely seems to move across the immense, flat Skardu valley, 40km long, 10 km wide and carpeted with sand dunes. There are several beautiful blue lakes nearby, including Satpara, and Upper and Lower Kachura.

08 Road Though Braldu Gorge To Askole Slants Dangerously Towards The Roaring Braldu River On our seven-hour 117km jeep ride from Skardu to the trailhead at Thongol (2850m), we drove through the 40km Braldu Gorge, where the road is blasted out of the rocks next to the roaring Braldu River. The sickeningly narrow gravel road sometimes slants dangerously towards the Braldu River. You have to withstand being scared constantly for two hours with your life clearly in your driver’s eyes, hands and feet. 'Oh well', I thought. The scariest thing for me was when the jeep had to do three-point turns around hairpin curves. He'd get to the edge with the foaming Braldu River hundreds of metres below, and then reverse back up the hill. 'I hope he knows the reverse gear', I think to myself.

Ahhh. Iqbal puts together the loads a little bit like a jigsaw puzzle trying to even them out to 25kg each. There are nine loads so Iqbal has to find five more porters. He tells me he's having trouble because the porters want to wait for the mountaineering expedition we met on the flight to Skardu. Here is our team at Thongol: below - Jerome Ryan, guide Iqbal, cook Ali; above - porters Syed, Muhammad Khan, and Muhammad Siddiq, and finally our sirdar Ali Naqi.

13 Trango Monk And Trango Nameless Tower Close Up From Baltoro Glacier Between Paiju And Khoburtse The Trango Tower (6239 m), commonly called Nameless Tower, is a very large, pointed spire which juts 1000m out of the ridgeline. The Trango Nameless Tower was first climbed in 1976 with Mo Anthoine, Martin Boysen reaching the summit on July 8, 1976 and Joe Brown and Malcolm Howells the next day. The Trango Monk (5850m) is to the left of Trango Nameless Tower.

13 Uli Biaho Tower Close Up From Khoburtse Just After Sunrise Uli Biaho Tower shines in the early morning sun from Khoburtse. The first ascent of Uli Biaho Tower (6109m) was made on July 3, 1979 by John Roskelley, Kim Schimtz, Ron Kauk and Bill Forrest via the east face. ‘One by one, each of us climbed to its broad top, soaked in the evening’s warmth, cried a little, laughed a little, and, for just a few brief moments, forgot the cold, thirst, and danger below.’ - Stories Off The Wall by John Roskelley.

20 Lobsang Spire From Khoburtse Just After Sunrise The early morning sun shines on Lobsang Spire (5707m) from Khoburtse. Lobsang Spire was first climbed on June 13, 1983 alpine style by Doug Scott, Greg Child, and Pete Thexton. ‘It’s featureless up there. Impossible,’ says Doug. 
Out comes the drill. 
 For two hours I hammer away on the fifteenth pitch, interspersing rivets with sequences of skyhooks balanced on tiny edges, in order that our ten rivets might last the 100 ft to the summit. When I step onto the final skyhook placed on the lip of the knife-edged summit I grab a handful of snow and sprinkle it onto Pete And Doug below. ‘A present from the summit,’ I shout.’ - Thin Air: Encounters in the Himalayas by Greg Child.

13 Masherbrum Close Up In Late Afternoon Sun From Goro II The clouds started to lift at our camp at Goro II on the Baltoro Glacier and I got my first spectacular view of Masherbrum (7821m, the 24th highest peak in the world). Originally called K1, Masherbrum is a spectacular rock and ice peak, rising to the south of the Baltoro Glacier.

14 Gasherbrum IV Summit Peaks Out Of Clouds At Sunset From Goro II The West Face of Gasherbrum IV shines at sunset from Goro II. The first ascent of Gasherbrum IV was made via the northeast ridge on August 6, 1958 by famed Italian mountaineer Walter Bonatti and Carlo Mauri on a strong Italian team led by legendary climber Riccardo Cassin. ‘A desperate struggle between the mountain and ourselves, but we were all winners, and at 12.30 exactly the little pennants of Italy, Pakistan and the C.A.I. fluttered on the Summit itself. Fluttered – no, blew out in the howling gale.’ - Karakoram: The Ascent Of Gasherbrum IV by Fosco Maraini.

15 Masherbrum Close Up At Sunrise From Goro II The next morning dawned clear with the first rays of the sun hitting Masherbrum with its ice cream cone top glistening in the sun from Goro II. The summit of Masherbrum's sheer north face is a perfect pyramid, with steep narrow ridges rising suddenly to a sharp pinnacle.  It was first climbed via the south west face on July 6, 1960 by George Bell and Willi Unsoeld on an American - Pakistani expedition. Two few days later on July 8, expedition leader Nick Clinch and Pakistani Captain Jawed Akhter Khan also reached the summit.

27 Muztagh Tower From Baltoro Glacier On Trek From Goro II to Concordia Taken from the upper Baltoro Glacier, the twin summits of Muztagh Tower (7274m) are perfectly aligned and the mountain is seen as a slender tooth, looking impregnable.  A similar photo by Vittorio Sella in 1909 inspired two expeditions to race for the first ascent in 1956. In reality both teams found their routes less steep than Sella's view had suggested. Joe Brown and Ian McNaught-Davis climbed from the west side of the peak and reached the west summit of Muztagh Tower (7270m) on July 6, 1956.  Tom Patey and John Hartog repeated the ascent the next day, also reaching the slightly higher east summit (7274m). A few days later a French Team of Guido Magnone, Robert Paragot, André Contamine, and Paul Keller climbed the mountain from the east.

33 Gasherbrum IV And Gasherbrum II Close Up From Baltoro Glacier Between Goro II and Concordia Gasherbrum IV would probably be a more popular climbing mountain if it was 75m taller. At 7925m, it is the 17th highest mountain in the world. Gasherbrum II (G2, 8035m) pokes out to the right of Gasherbrum IV. On June 22, 1986 Greg Child, Tim Mcartney-Snape, and Tom Hargis climbed to the North Summit and traversed 450m horizontally to the true Gasherbrum IV Summit, completing the first ascent of the Gasherbrum IV Northwest Ridge. ‘We functioned as a single being. Now on the summit, that being, drunk with euphoria, felt suddenly as if it had been merged with sky and mountain as well to become a single, elemental entity.’ - Thin Air: Encounters In The Himalaya by Greg Child.

35 Broad Peak Central And Main Summits From Baltoro Glacier Between Goro II and Concordia Broad Peak (8047m) came into view before reaching Concordia. The Central Summit is on the left and the Main summit is on the far right. Its name was originally set as K3, right after the famed K2. But when Sir Martin Conway saw the peak in close detail, with its summit over a mile long, he named it ‘Broad Peak’ which has stuck to this day. The first ascent of Broad Peak was completed by Marcus Schmuck, Fritz Wintersteller, Kurt Diemberger, and Hermann Buhl on June 9, 1957. This extremely small expedition marked a major step forward in the development of Himalayan climbing. Diemberger: ‘[Buhl's] plan was that from base camp onwards there would only be climbers on the mountain; they would do everything, load-carrying, establishment of camps and, finally, the assault on the summit. And it was all to be done without the use of oxygen.’ Diemberger reached the summit just as Marcus Schmuck and Fritz Wintersteller started their descent. As Diemberger was descending from the summit he met Buhl still ascending. ‘Slowly, with all that incredible strength of his will, he started to move, very slowly, upwards. ... Two men were standing on a peak, still breathing heavily from the ascent, their limbs weary - but they did not notice it; for the all-enveloping glory of the sun's low light had encompassed them too. Deeper and deeper grew the colours. ... No dream-picture, this. It was real enough, and it happened on the 26,404-foot summit of Broad Peak.’ – Summits And Secrets by Kurt Diemberger.

01 Concordia Campsite below Mitre Peak Our campsite at Concordia (4745m) is beautifully situated below Mitre Peak. Concordia was named by Sir Martin Conway in 1892 after the Place de la Concorde in Paris. Concordia is the junction of Baltoro Glacier, Godwin Austin Glacier (descending from K2), and the Upper Baltoro Glacier. The view from all around is incredible.

08 K2 Close Up From Concordia Afternoon The K2 West Face shines in the late afternoon sun from Concordia. The K2 West Ridge is on the far left. The Southwest Pillar separates the sunny west face from the K2 South Face. The Great Serac is just in shadow to the right below the K2 Summit. The K2 Shoulder is farther down to the right, partially in the sun. The K2 West Ridge was first climbed by Japanese Eiho Otani and Pakistani Nazir Sabir, reaching the K2 summit on August 7, 1981.

19 Gasherbrum IV At Sunrise From Concordia Gasherbrum IV (7925m) at sunrise from Concordia, with the northwest ridge on the left. The 3000m high Gasherbrum IV West Face was climbed by Robert Schauer and Wojciech Kurtyka in an alpine push between July 13 and 20, 1985. After reaching the North Summit, bad weather and extreme exhaustion forced them to descend, missing the main summit. Their climb was selected by Climbing magazine as the greatest Himalayan climb of the 20th century.

24 Sunrise On K2 Summit From Concordia The first rays of sunrise light up the K2 summit, the K2 South Face, the Great Serac, and the Shoulder, seen from Concordia. The upper part of the K2 South-South-West Ridge catches a bit of sun separating the west face in shadow from the sun descending the K2 South Face. On August 3, 1986 Wojciech Wroz, Przemyslaw Piasecki and Peter Bozik completed the first ascent of the South-South-West Ridge, called the ‘Magic Line’ by Reinhold Messner. Wroz fell to his death on the descent, apparently abseiling of the end of a fixed rope.

25 K2 Just After Sunrise From Concordia K2 shines in the early morning light from Concordia. The upper part of the K2 Southwest Pillar catches a bit of sun separating the west face in shadow from the sun descending the K2 South Face. The South-southeast Spur is partially in the sun and arrives at the K2 Shoulder on the right. On the far right is the Abruzzi Ridge / Spur, the East-southeast ridge, the normal ascent route. Called a suicidal route by Reinhold Messner, the K2 South Face or ‘Polish Line’ was climbed for the first time on July 7, 1986 by Jerzy Kukuczka and Tadeusz Piotrowski. Piotrowski fell to his death on the descent.

33 K2 Full View With Angel Angelus Peak From Near Concordia In The Morning Just after leaving Concordia, I looked up the Godwin Austin Glacier as the sun finally hit the K2 West Face, with Angel Peak (Angelus Peak) coming into view on the left. The K2 Southwest Pillar separates the sunlit South Face from the West Face mostly in shadow to the left.  The South-southeast Spur is now lit up by the sun and arrives at the K2 Shoulder on the right. On the far right is the Abruzzi Ridge / Spur, the East-southeast ridge, the normal ascent route.

33 K2 Full View With Angel Angelus Peak From Near Concordia In The Morning

32 Broad Peak North Summit, Central Summit And Main Summit Early Morning From Near Concordia Just after leaving Concordia, the sun finally hit Broad Peak. The North Summit is on the far left, the Central Summit is slightly out of view in the middle, and on the far right is the Main Summit. The first ascent of Broad Peak North summit was made by Renato Casarotto on June 28, 1983. The first traverse of the three Broad Peak summits was completed by Jerzy Kukuczka and Wojtek Kurtyka. They climbed the west ridge to the North summit, continued along the ridge to the Central summit. The pair then descended to Broad Col from where they followed the original route over the Forepeak to the main summit on July 17, 1984.

12 Shagring Camp On The Upper Baltoro Glacier With Baltoro Kangri We camped at Shagring (4853m) near the junction of the Upper Baltoro and Abruzzi Glaciers. Baltoro Kangri towers just beyond the camp. Baltoro Kangri (Golden Throne, 7312m) is an enormous dome of snow and ice capped with five summits, seen here from Concordia in the late afternoon. Baltoro Kangri V (southeast, 7260 m) was first climbed by James Belaieff, Piero Ghiglione and Andre Roch, on August 3, 1934, who then skied down from over 7000m. The other four summits were climbed by two Japanese expeditions in 1963 and 1976,

13 Chogolisa Late Afternoon From Shagring Camp On Upper Baltoro Glacier Chogolisa (7665m) is a high snow peak with a distinctive long, almost level summit ridge, seen from Shagring camp on the Upper Baltoro Glacier. Chogolisa I (7665m) is the southwest summit on the left. The slightly lower northeast summit Chogolisa II (7654m) was named Bride Peak by Sir Martin Conway in 1892. In 1909, a party led by Duke of the Abruzzi reached 7500m before being stopped by bad weather. Hermann Buhl and Kurt Diemberger attempted Chogolisa in 1957 after they had successfully summited Broad Peak a few weeks earlier. On June 25 they left camp I and camped in a saddle at 6706m on the southwest ridge. Bad weather forced them to retreat and on June 27 Buhl fell through a cornice and disappeared. His body has never been found.

15 Chogolisa I And Long Ridge To Chogolisa II Close Up Late Afternoon From Shagring Camp On Upper Baltoro Glacier Chogolisa I (7665m) is on the left and Chogolisa II (7654m) is on the right, seen from Shagring camp on the Upper Baltoro Glacier. On August 4, 1958 a Japanese expedition organized by the Academic Alpine Club of Kyoto led by Takeo Kawabara made the first ascent of Chogolisa II, with Masao Fujihira and Kazumasa Hirai reaching the summit. The first ascent of Chogolisa I (7665m) was made on August 2, 1975 by Fred Pressl and Gustav Ammerer of an Austrian expedition led by Eduard Koblmuller. Koblmuller almost suffered the same fate as Hermann Buhl, as he also fell through a cornice on the ascent; fortunately, he was roped and team members were able to pull him to safety.

17 Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum I South Close Up The next morning we started our trek from Shagring Camp to Gasherbrum Base Camp in mostly cloudy weather. After 30 minutes we reached ‘Gasherbrum Corner’ at the junction of the Upper Baltoro Glacier with the tributary Abruzzi Glacier. Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum I South lie straight ahead. Gasherbrum I (8080m) is the 11th highest mountain in the world. Gasherbrum I was first climbed by July 5, 1958 by Americans Pete Schoening and Andy Kauffman. Gasherbrum I South (7069m) was first climbed by Maurice Barrard and Georges Narbaud via the Southwest Ridge in July 1980 on their ascent of Gasherbrum I
