DIRAN PEAK (7,273 M) EXPEDITION


Diran Peak (7273m) also known as Minapin Peak is situated between Haramosh Massif and Rakaposhi of Karakoram Range which offers one of the most spectacular sceneries in Hunza valley. Adding to the rugged beauty of Hunza Diran peak stands prominently offering a Panoramic view to Hunza valley,

The South face is also visible from Karakoram Highway, and it dominates the Bagrot valley. This face is a little more complicated yet safer concerning the risk of snow and ice avalanches. Diran Peak is situated in the vicinity of Minapin, Hinarchi and Baltar glaciers and the region of Rakaposhi and Haramosh. The entire ascent is on snow slopes with bare rock only peeping here and there. The higher pitch is smooth but exploited with wind-blown. Due to the proximity of Karakoram Highway, this peak is very easily accessible.


In 1968 the three members of Austrian Expedition attempted Diran, and they have got on the summit successful. They found Hidden crevasses and high snow Domes on the Northwest Ridge.
