The entire Gasherbrum Group,...
The entire Gasherbrum Group, taken from Ghandogoro Pass. From left to right; Gasherbrums IV, III, II, V, VI, I. (VI being in front of and slightly to the left of G.I, which is at the extreme right of the photo).

The Ghandogoro pass is a terrific viewpoint and is accessible for any trekker who is fit and has a decent pair of mountain boots. From up there you can also see K2, Broad Peak, Chogolisa, Masherbrum, Drifica, and many other peaks.

Says that the tour including this pass is at minimum 600m and max 5650m. So it appears to be as high as Orizaba or Elbrus.

The Ghandogoro pass (also known as the Ghondokoro La) is 5585m altitude. It joins the upper Ghandogoro Glacier (Hushe valleys area) with the upper Vigne Glacier, and therefore makes a useful shorter route up into the Concordia area, rather than walking all the way up the Baltoro Glacier from Askole.

One point with your description. It's not possible to see Masherbrum or Chogolisa from Gondogoro La. You can see these peaks from nearby Gondogoro Peak (5700m) though.
