Masherbrum and Hushe Valley Pleasure Climbing area

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A drive up the Indus and Shyok valleys brings you to this vista: the Hushe valley, locked up by the Masherbrum peak, also called K1 (7,821 metres, 25,659 ft).

Masherbrum is the highest peak of the Masherbrum Mountains, a subrange of the Karakoram range. It is a large and striking peak, which is somewhat overshadowed by the nearby 8,000 metres (26,000 ft) peaks of the main range of the Karakoram which includes four of the fourteen Eight-thousanders, namely K2, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak and Gasherbrum II.

The Masherbrum Mountains lie to the south of the Baltoro Glacier and the main range of the Karakoram lies to the north of the Baltoro. The main range is the continental divide of southern Asia. Rivers to the south flow into the Arabian Sea. Rivers to the north flow to the Yellow Sea.
