Khunyang Chhish is the second highest Peak in the Hispar Muztagh. It is ranked 21st in the world and 8th in Pakistan. This stupendous Peak is part of a Group or massif, which includes the distinct peaks of Khunyang Chhish South at 7620 metres , Khunyang Chhish West at 7500 metres, Khunyang Chhish East at 7400 metres, and Khunyang Chhish South East", at 7320 metres. The great Khunyang Glacier in the Karakorum was not fully explored until 1938, at which time the awesome beauty of its eastern head was discovered. Here, great mountains tower on three sides above the glacier. Khianyang Kish is the highest peak to the glacier's south, and Disteghil Sar (7877 metres) is the highest on the north. Khunyang Chhish is characterized by difficult rock, ice walls and sharp ridges, with snow that is a maze of cornices and crevasses. The second attempt was in 1965, and a climber was killed when a narrow ridge collapsed at over 23,600 feet. Though cursed with bad fortune in these early attempts, climbers eventually succeeded in reaching the summit in 1971, and several parties have successfully climbed it since. It rises almost 4000m above its southern base camp on the glacier, and it rises 5500m above the Hunza valley. It is a steep, pointed, and complex peak; it easily rivals the slightly higher Disteghil Sar, which has a more rounded profile. The first climbing attempt on Khunyang Chhish was made in 1962 but the climb was aborted after an avalanche killed two climbers. The next attempt was in 1965 but another climber died after the collapse of a narrow ridge at 7,200 m (23,600 ft). The first ascent was accomplished by a Polish team led by Andrzej Zawada in 1971. They climbed a long route up the South Ridge of the peak from the Pumari Chhish Glacier.
