Rakaposhi Expedition

Rakaposhi stands as the most renowned peak in the valley, and it offers multiple routes for climbers to undertake. This majestic mountain dominates the horizon, consistently visible from the Karakoram Highway. The breathtaking panorama observed from Hunza defies adequate description, leaving all who witness it in awe. The perpetual glacier that graces Rakaposhi adds an exhilarating touch of delight to the natural splendor of Hunza.

In 1892, Martin Conway embarked on an exploration of Rakaposhi, though he was unable to find a viable route to the summit. The historic achievement of reaching the peak was realized on June 25, 1958, when British and Pakistani expedition members, including Mike Banks and Tom Patey from the UK, successfully summited Rakaposhi. The North Spur of the mountain was triumphantly climbed on August 2, 1979, by Eiho Ohtani and Matsushi Yamashita from Waseda University in Japan.
