Situated in the Karakoram Mountains range in Pakistan, Rakaposhi Mountain stands at the height of 7,788m. It is a beautiful peak surrounded by the great valleys of Bagrote and Nagar. The peak is also known as “Dumani” which means ‘the mother of the clouds.’ Throughout the world, it is the only peak that has cultivated land on its lap. In addition, it is the only peak on Earth whose descent from the summit to the base is continuous and direct for over 6000 meters. It is a little unexpected that there are just three paths to the peak, given the size of the mountain. That is why, Rakaposhi Expedition offers you an amazing experience.

Many people have thought about climbing the mountain’s peak because of its unique location in the Hunza valley, but only a small number have ever reached the summit. Because of this, the mountains continue to elude many tourists who come to the region. From Rakaposhi, it isn’t easy to ascend in any direction. The southern and eastern routes are extremely dangerous because of the significant avalanche risk. On the other hand, the western routes are very long, very high, and technically challenging.

Using the Southwest Spur/Ridge route, Mike Banks and Tom Patey of a British-Pakistani team made the first ascent of Rakaposhi in 1958. During the climb, both of them experienced slight frostbite. On the way down, another climber slid and died that night.
