Introduction

The Hispar Muztagh is a sub-range of the mighty Karakoram mountains. It lies on the north side of the Hispar glacier, Pakistan's fifth largest glacier and certainly one of the most impressive. To the north of the Hispar Muztagh is the Shimshal valley, named after the village at the heart of the region. The range contains numerous 7000m+ peaks, some of which remain unclimbed with many only having been ascended once.
