Batura I is the highest peak in the Batura Range with a hight of 7,785 meters. RCF Schomberg explored the southern approach to Batura from Baltar and Kukay glacier in 1947, but this approach was found blocked by a sheer mountainous wall with a height of nearly 6,000ft. 


 In September 1925, a professional survey-exploratory team led by Dr. Philips Christian Visser with his wife Jenny Visser-Hooft, after returning to Passu via Karun Pir, insisted on exploring the whole of Batura Glacier.


In 1976, the German Goppinger Himalayan expedition of Dr. Alexander Schlee, consisting of six persons, went to the peak area.
They set up their base camp and five other camps, and two of their members climbed the peak braving a terrible and cloudy day. Another nearby peak to Batura I is Batura II, also known as peak No.31. Maps from Europe show its height as 7,730m, while Japanese maps show its height as 7,760m and 7,710m.
