2007 was the Golden Jubilee Year of the First Ascent of Broad Peak which was climbed for the first time 50 years back on 09 June 1957 by Austrian climbers Mr. Marcus Schmuck, Mr. Fritz Wintersteller, Mr. Diemberger and Mr. Hermann Buhl.
A 26 members strong Austrian team led by Mr. Gerfried Gopsche arrived in Pakistan on 18 June 2007 in a bid to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the first ascent of Broad Peak in a befitting manner by putting their national flag on the summit of Broad Peak during its Golden Jubilee year 2007. Finally 8-members of this Expedition including the leader were successful in reaching the 8047 Meters high summit of Broad Peak on 20 July & 31 July 2007. That is how, very proudly, the Austrians celebrated the Golden Jubilee of the First Ascent of Broad Peak.
Overall 25 Expeditions tried their luck on Broad Peak, out of which 19 Expeditions have been successful in putting 77 members including 6 Pakistani climbers on the summit of Broad Peak and only 06 Expeditions have returned un-successful.
Renowned Mountaineer Simone Moro also tried to climb this peak in winter 2007-2008.
