Rakaposhi (Räkapoşi) is a mountain in the Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan. It is situated in the Nagar Valley Nagar District approximately 100 km north of the capital city Gilgit of the Gilgit–Baltistan, province of Pakistan. Rakaposhi means “Snow Covered” in the local language. It is also known as Dumani (“Mother of Mist”). It is ranked 27th highest in the world and 12th highest in Pakistan, but it is more popular for its beauty than its rank might suggest. Rakaposhi has an uninterrupted vertical rise of approximately 6000 m (19,685 feet), making it the tallest mountain on Earth when measured from the base to peak.

Rakaposhi was first climbed in 1958 by Mike Banks and Tom Patey, members of a British-Pakistani expedition, via the Southwest Spur/Ridge route. Both of them suffered minor frostbite during the ascent. Another climber slipped and fell on the descent and died during the night. Diran is a mountain in the Karakoram range in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. This 7,266-metre pyramid shaped mountain lies to the east of Rakaposhi.

The Hunza is a mountainous valley in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan. The Hunza is situated north/west of pakistan. Hunza was formerly a princely state bordering Uyghurstan to the northeast and Pamir to the northwest, which survived until 1974, when it was finally dissolved by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

Most visitors only see the Bagrot valley’s broad alluvial fan across the Gilgit River. 15 km downstream from Gilgit. Its narrow, lower reaches are desolate, but above Sinakkar it’s a cultivated and settled valley. From Bagrot, the stunning south faces of Rakaposhi (7788m) and Diran ( 7266m) peaks, as well as the lovely twin summits of Bilchar Dobani (6134m) are visible. Phuparash (6785m), Malubiting (7458m), Laila (6986m) and Haramosh (7409m) peaks tower over the Haramosh valley, which lies east of Bagrot and branches north from the Indus River. Treks in these valleys, seldom on trekker’s itineraries, are readily accessible by road with mostly easy trails and superb views.
