Khosar Gang Peak Climbing History

The first ascent of this peak was made in 1899 by the American Couple Dr. William Hunter Workman and Fanny Bullock Workman. The estimated elevation of peak by them was 21,000ft. At that time this was a world altitude record for women climbers.  Since then there have been many expeditions and the success rate is above 90%. Simone Morro, Denis Urubko, and their team have also tried this peak for acclimatization during their famous Karakoram winter expedition 2010-11. They could not summit Khosar gang peak and just end up below some meters from the summit due to the risk of frostbite to one of the climbing partners Corey.


In recent years it has gained more attention from climbing enthusiasts, across the world, particularly among domestic Pakistani climbers. There are more than 20 expeditions each year and most of them are being undertaken by local climbers. We are the host of Khosar Gang Peak; it is our communal pasture so we are able to provide a better package than anyone else. We offer a full-service Khosar Gang Expedition at a very reasonable cost.
