Broad Peak Expedition

Broad Peak, locally known as Falchan Kangri, is the 12th-highest Peak with an elevation of 8047m and is the most accessible mountain in Pakistan among 8000m peaks. Most climbers use Broad Peak as an acclimating mountain for K2 because the way from Broad peak base camp to K2 base camp is just around one and a half hours. The first ascent of Broad Peak was made on June 9, 1957, by an Austrian team led by Marcus Schmuck and his team, including Fritz Winter steller, Kurt Diemberger, and Hermann Buhl. The team made the summit of Broad peak without the use of Oxygen.

Facts: It is considered one of the easiest among 8000m, but it sometimes gives big surprises by the avalanche. It straightforward climbs. Rocky sections close to the false summit create troubles in reaching the summit.
