Rakaposhi (7788m) is one of the most beautiful peak and the world’s 29th highest mountain. It dominates the horizon and watches over the Karakoram Highway as you travel from Gilgit to Hunza. The peak is surrounded by famous glaciers and valleys like Bagrot, Minapin and Jaglot.
 
There are several approaches to Rakaposhi. Its Northwestern Peak (6858m) was first reached by Campbell Secord and Vyvyan in 1938 via Jaglot route. In 1958 a British – Pakistan Forces expedition led by Captain Michael E. B. Bank attempted the peak through the north side of the Kunti Glacier and what is known as Monk’s head. The leader Captain Bank and Lieutenant T.W. Patey of the British Royal Navy climbed the peak. The Ghulmet route is a hot and dry ascent up the ridge between the Ghulmet and Pisan Glaciers.
 
The most scenic approach to Rakaposhi BC is from Minapin to Tagafari and Kacheli. This route goes through thick forests, pastures, and green valleys. In this expedition we will take the Jaglot Nullah route to the base camp for attempting the peak.
