One of the most beautiful and magnificent mountains Rakaposhi locally known as Domani (Mother of mist)  is a mountain in the Karakorum mountain range in Pakistan. It is ranked 27th highest in the world and 12th highest in Pakistan, but it is more popular for its beauty than its rank might suggest. Being massive and broad that it dominates the skyline. Hardly somebody will not be impressed by its distinct beauty and its hugeness and steepness so close to human environments. Nevertheless, Rakaposhi is not an easy climbing mountain in any of its routes. A wonderful challenge is assured, for its incredible rise over the surrounded area. Rakaposhi rises about 6000m in only 16.5km horizontal measure from the Hunza River that runs between the KKH and the main peak.

Rakaposhi is the name of a high Karakorum mountain massif and the huge pyramid peak which tops this massif. The mountain dominates the Hunza Valley west of K2, its steep ice-covered peak towering above barren cliffs and terraces. Rakaposhi's climate is generally more favorable than that of the Himalayas, as it is located far enough west to be only minimally affected by the monsoon in July and August. In fact, long periods of exceptional weather are not uncommon throughout the summer. The famous glaciers and valleys of Barpu, Biro, Bagrot, Pisan, Surgin, Masot, Ghulmet, Minapin and Hinarchi surround the mighty Rakaposhi. Nearby the main summit, there are the secondary East Rakaposhi peak (7290m) and the East-East Rakaposhi peak (7010m). Rakaposhi was first climbed in 1958 by Mike Banks and Tom Patey, members of a British-Pakistani expedition, via the Southwest Spur/Ridge route.
