Nanga Parbat

At present, a notable contingent of climbers has gathered at Camp 3, poised to commence their ascent to the summit tonight. This year, there is no Camp 4 on the route, but a higher proportion of climbers have opted to use supplementary oxygen. This decision enables them to endure a longer summit day and increases their chances of success. It is worth noting that the widespread adoption of supplementary oxygen on Nanga Parbat, standing tall at 8,126 meters, is a relatively recent development, mirroring the trend observed on other “lower” 8,000-meter peaks.

Board Peak

The Expedition Organizing team has made significant progress on Broad Peak, a formidable mountain in the Karakoram range. They have successfully established their camps and secured fixed ropes up to the col located at an altitude of 7,800 meters. With this crucial groundwork in place, climbers are now gearing up for the next phase of their ascent, targeting higher camps as they inch closer to their ultimate goal of reaching the summit. However, their plans hinge on favorable weather conditions, and they anticipate making their summit attempt from Camp 3 sometime next week.

To ensure safe passage along the challenging ridge sections, the guides, and high-altitude porters will diligently fix ropes, providing vital support for the climbers as they progress toward the peak. climbers are en route to the mountain. Overcrowding is not anticipated to be an issue at this stage.


Expedition Organizers have started their preparations for the daring ascent with teams wasting no time in commencing the crucial task of fixing ropes along the route. Summit Karakoram/8K Expeditions has taken the lead in this endeavor, successfully roping the way to Camp 1, marking a significant milestone in their journey towards the summit.
