Diran Peak Expedition
Diran peak 7266m is a mountain in the Karakorum Range of the (Gilgit- Baltistan) Northern Areas of Pakistan. This pyramid shaped mountain lies in the East of Rakaposhi (7,788m). Diran peak 7266m was first climbed in 1968 by three Austrians Rainer Goeschl, Rudolph Pischinger, and Hanns Schell. Earlier attempts by a German expedition in 1959 and an Australian expedition in 1964 were unsuccessful.
Diran is a dangerous mountain in Pakistan as its snow faces are often laden with avalanche prone snow slopes and so far causing many events resulting in dozens of deaths.
