Ask for Trips to Trango Tower

There are some impressive and extremely difficult rock towers around the world, competing in being the hardest to climb. One of the more famous and possibly the group of peaks that would get the most votes for being the toughest is the Trango Tower Peaks. There are two main summits in the central part of the group: Great Trango Tower (6286m) and Nameless Tower (6230m) just Trango Tower. The peaks have some of the highest vertical faces on the planet and were for a long time some of the most coveted mountaineering challenges. It was not until 1975 the area opened for climbing and the race for the hard-to-reach summits began.
Great Trango Tower has three routes straight up the East /North East face and a couple of alpine routes on the north west and west sides of the peak. Nameless Tower has been climbed via many routes, which all are located on its south east and south west faces. It's said the quality of the granite is very good on both the main peaks as well as on the lesser peaks in the area.

The group is reasonable easy to access as it is located much closer to civilization than many other popular peaks in Pakistan.
