Rakaposhi Expedition (7788m)

1/3

Overview

Rakaposhi Mountain is in the Nagar Valley of Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan. Rakaposhi is ranked 27th highest mountain in the world and 12th highest in Pakistan. Rakaposhi is more popular for its beauty than its rank might suggest. Rakaposhi means “Snow Covered” in the local language. Rakaposhi is also known as Dumani (“Mother of Mist''). The mountain is extremely broad measuring almost 20 km from East to West. It is the only peak on Earth that drops directly, uninterrupted, for almost 6000m from the summit to the base. Considering the mountain’s bulk it is slightly surprising that there are only three completed routes to the summit. SW Spur This is considered the easiest route and is consequently the most popular.

 

Besides the highest peak of the Rakaposhi massif is Rakaposhi East (7010m). This peak also holds significant value to Geologists as it is the prow of the Eurasian landmass with Nanga Parbat representing the prow of the Indian land mass.

After six failed Expeditions, Rakaposhi was first climbed in 1958 by Mike Banks and Tom Petty, members of a British-Pakistani Rakaposhi Expedition, via the Southwest Spur/Ridge route. Both of them suffered minor frostbite during the ascent.
