Gasherbrum II (8034m) is part of the Gasherbrum mountain group, formed by six peaks, two of which (G I and G II) are over 8000m high. It is the 13th highest mountain in the world. The first exploration of the mountain was made in 1909 by an Italian expedition under the leadership of the Duke of Abruzzo. One of the members of the expedition was Vittorio Sella, the quality of whose photos has not been surpassed to the present day. The first ascent of G II was made on July 7, 1956, by three members of an Austrian expedition under the leadership of Fritz Moravec, via the Southwest Ridge. Together with Moravec, Sepp Larcher and Hans Willenpart reached the summit after a bivouac at 7700m. The second ascent was made 20 years later by a French-Polish expedition. Today, G II is the destination of a large number of expeditions, as it has no great technical difficulties.
