Description [Suggest Change]
The Hispar Mustagh is a collection of big snowy peaks such as Trivor and Disteghal Sar , Mohmil Sar near the snout of the Hispar Glacier an a series of rock towers such as the Latok Group, Baintha Brakk, Sosbun Brakk, and more.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
For the rock towers its best to trek up the Biafo Glacier, which can be reached from Askoli in one day. For the larger peaks its logistically simpler to either access from the Mohmil glacier in Shimshal valley or to approach from the village of Nagar.
