“Rising into the twilight thou white and shining peak draw me away from this turmoil and tell me you’re not meek” Liver Khan
Hidden Peak as translated by the natives means “Shining Wall”. Among the six Gasherburn Peaks in the Karakoram range Gasherbrum I is the highest. The Americans were the first to reach its the Autumn of 1958. It was first climbed by A. Kaufman and P. Schoening in 1958. Although the French had made an attempt as early as 1956, Hidden Peak was also the first eight thousand meter peak to be climbed in Alpine style. These days there are more than six different routes on Gasherbrun I with as many variations providing the able mountaineer with opportunities galore. The trek to the Base Camp starts at Skardu town through Shigar valley across the Baltoro glacier.
