Pakistan is enjoying a historic climbing season with around 1,400 foreign mountaineers bidding to scale its lofty peaks.

The country is home to five of the world's 14 mountains higher than 8,000 metres, and climbing them all is considered the ultimate achievement of any mountaineer.

8000-meter peaks in Pakistan

K2 – 8,611 meters

The world’s second-highest peak, K2, is considered the ultimate mountaineering challenge due to extremely difficult topography and harsh weather.

Nanga Parbat – 8,126 meters

The world’s ninth tallest mountain, Nanga Parbat, is also known as the ‘Killer Mountain’ as many climbers have died in the past during its summit.

Gasherbrum I – 8,080 meters

Gasherbrum I is the 11th highest mountain in the world. The mountaineers have to deal with avalanches and rock falls in order to make it to the top.

Broad Peak – 8,051 meters

Broad Peak is the world’s 12th highest peak. It is called Broad Peak because of its breadth at the top, which is two-kilometer wide.

Gasherbrum II – 8035 meters

Gasherbrum II is the world’s 13th highest peak. The remote nature of the peak ensures that only climbers with stamina and determination can be successful here.
