Gasherbrum IV peak at sunset

Gasherbrum IV is the 17th highest mountain on Earth and the 6th highest in Pakistan. It is one of the peaks in the Gasherbrum massif.
The Gasherbrums are a remote group of peaks located at the northeastern end of the Baltoro Glacier in the Karakoram range of the Himalaya. The massif contains three of the world's 8, 000 metre peaks (if one includes Broad Peak). Gasherbrum is often claimed to mean Shining Wall, presumably a reference to the highly visible west face of Gasherbrum IV; but in fact, it comes from rgasha (beautiful) and brum (mountain) in Balti, hence it actually means beautiful mountain.
Baltoro Glacier trekking is one of the best treks in the world. The trekking starts from the village of Askole, walking along the Baltoro Glacier to reach Concordia. Concordia is the heart of Karakoram Range, and center of a complex of some of the world highest peaks and many of the largest glaciers. On every side, within radius of 24 kms, rise up ten of the world's thirty highest peaks, including, K2, Broad Peak, and Gasherbrum peaks.
