Broad Peak Expedition

1/3

Overview

Broad Peak Expedition is a popular adventure climb. Broad Peak is one the highest mountains of the world. Due to its immense bulk it is named the Broad Peak. “Falchan Kangri” is the name given to this gigantic peak by the local people of Baltistan. In the surrounding area of Broad Peak it has a very strong presence among the other mountains.

 

Broad Peak is among the 14 above 8000m peaks that towers above Concordia. It is located at the heart of Karakoram Range and it dominates the entire mountain scene along the Baltoro Glacier. It is situated on the frontier of Pakistan and China and it stands high between the K2 and Gasherbrum Peaks. On 9 June, 1957 an Austrian Expedition team consisting of Marcus Schmuck, Fritz Wintersteller, Kurt Diemberger and Hermann Buhl went on the Broad Peak Expedition and made history by conquering it. This team was led by Marcus Schmuck and the successful campaign turned many mountaineers to go for the Broad Peak Expedition. The campaign was accomplished without any supplemental oxygen. There was no base camp support and apparently they made it successful without any high altitude porter.

 

The route to Broad Peak Expedition, Camp 1 involves ascending via a rock gully at the elevation of 6000 m which is followed by a large snow face that leads to Camp 2 which is on an elevation of 6400. The final camp lies at an elevation of 7400m, from this point the bid to summit is made.

 

Broad Peak Expedition climb does not involve any extreme steepness however the remote setting will make the experience of climbing this magnificent peak highly rewarding. No matter if you are a beginner or master climber, the nature of the climb in the Baltoro Region will have its unique experience.
