Gasherbrum II (8035m) is one of the 8000ers in Pakistan and 13th highest mountain on earth, located in the Karakorum. Gharserbrum II (8035m) is one of the enchanting peak among the Karakorum Himalayan series (Pakistan). It has been described as an impressive peak, much like Cho Oyu walking to its BC. The climbing provides a perfect mountaineering experience. GII stands in the majestic neighborhood of K2 in a close line-up of world’s highest peaks in the titanic amphitheater of Concordia.

The snow-face of the South-West Ridge presents difficulties on ice and snow mixed faces and ridges once you reach above the plateau after negotiating the heavily crevassed Gasherbrum Glacier. It has a steep way up at some sections. From above the snowy Banana Ridge you continue climbing on a series of ridges and reach a platform where camp 2 is generally settle up. From here you climb a couple of ice pitches and then up the face going steeper before you reach the shoulder, the site of C3 at 7490m. After three pitches from there it is a diagonal way across the route from where a traverse leads to the base of the summit pyramid on the East Ridge. The climb from there is wide open with glorious surroundings but there is a few steep sections before you reach the narrow summit ridge.
The standard route is via the southwest ridge as it is relatively free of objective hazards such as ice falls and avalanches. Gasherbrum II was first climbed on July 8, 1956 by Fritz Moravec, Josef Larch and Hans Willenpart of an Austrian expedition.
