 The Mountains of Pakistan: Latok Peaks


A three days walk from Askole Village will bring you to the base of Latok and Orge Peaks. The Base camp at 4200m is pretty green and with plenty of fresh water, shapes like a soccer. Latok Group can also be reach from Panmah Glacier, Nobande Sobande Glacier.

Latok I is 7145m, Latok II is 7108m (a recent Italian expedition surveyed the Latok peaks and measured Latok II higher than Latok I), Latok III 6940m, Latok IV 6456m, Latok IV SE Ca6450m. The other peaks close by are Choktoi 6166m, Baintha Brakk SE 6960m, 7285m middle, Orge Thumb, Lukphila Brakk 5500m, Spaldang 5590m, Biacherahi Towers 5900m. 

The shortest route to Latok peaks can be reach from Biafo Glacier. The Ho Bluk, on the right bank of the Biafo Glacier is said to be the highest grazing land. The environment here is pleasant. This is also the grazing ground for Brown Baer and Himalayan Ibex.

Latok peaks are mixture of ice and rock climbing. Not all of Latok Peaks faces is climb, there is plenty of opportunity for adventure lovers to come and make their first ascent. In 1999the Huber brothers made the second ascent on IV south 6450m in one day.
