SUMMIT DIRAN

Diran is a mountain in the Karakoram range in Nagar Valley, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. This 7,266-metre (23,839 ft) pyramid shaped mountain lies to the east of Rakaposhi (7,788m). Diran is the most dangerous mountain in Pakistan as its snow is the cause of many events resulting in hundred of deaths. Diran was first climbed in 1968 by three Austrians: Rainer Goeschl, Rudolph Pischinger and Hanns Schell. Earlier attempts by a German expedition in 1959 and an Austrian expedition in 1964 were unsuccessful.
