PakPeak Gasherbrum IV  is a category B1 (7500-7999m) PakPeak.It is one of the peaks in the Gasherbrum massif  and is 17th highest mountain on Earth and the 6th highest in Pakistan. The Gasherbrums  are a remote group of peaks located at the northeastern end of the Baltoro Glacier in the Karakoram range of the Himalaya. The massif contains three of the world’s 8,000 metre peaks (including Broad Peak). Gasherbrum is often claimed to mean “Shining Wall”, presumably a reference to the highly visible west face of PakPeak Gasherbrum IV. However  the word comes from “rgasha” (beautiful) and “brum” (mountain) in Balti, hence it actually means “beautiful mountain.”
