Stunning View of Sunrise on Rakaposhi Tauheed Ahmad July 6, 2014 Photography 2313 Rakaposhi is a beautiful mountain in the Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan. It is located in the Nagar Valley about 100 km north of the city of Gilgit in the Gilgit–Baltistan province of Pakistan. In the local language Rakaposhi means “Snow Covered” and also recognized as Dumani (“Mother of Mist”). Rakaposhi ranked is 27th highest in the world and 12th highest in Pakistan, but it is more famous for its true nature beauty than its rank might suggest. In a colloquial sense, i.e. measured from base to summit, Rakaposhi with its uninterrupted 6000 m vertical rise is the tallest mountain on Earth. Rakaposhi was first climbed in 1958 by Mike Banks and Tom Patey, members of a British-Pakistani expedition, through the Southwest Spur-Ridge route, but both of them suffered slight frostbite during the ascent. Moreover another climber unfortunately slipped and fell on the descent and died during the night.Photo Credit to Sikander Sarwari Related PostsLadyfinger Peak, Bublimotin is a distinct rock spire in the Batura Muztagh PakistanBreathtaking Snow-Capped Mountains and Serene Lochs of the Scottish HighlandsStunning Photographs of Frozen Waterfall in JapanIceland!
