Description [Edit]

This mountain is a little short of being 8000 meters but is the most technical and gorgeous peak in the Gasherbrum Group. The famous 'shining wall' was first climbed by Walter Bonatti.

Getting There [Edit]

From Rawalpindi catch a bus to Skardu OR fly from Islamabad to Skardu. From Skardu get a private jeep hire which will take you to Askoli village. From Askoli you follow a "trail" through the Braldu valley and onto the Baltoro Glacier. You can get to Concordia in about a week. From Concordia the basecamp to G4 is about a 5-6 hour hike.
