Full description

The peak is called Minapin as well as Diran. It is situated in Rakaposhi and Haramosh mountain region near the Minapin, Hinarchi and Baultar glaciers and it is easily accessible because of the Karakoram Highway.

It is one of the fascinating peaks that dominates the Gilgit valley and adds special color to its otherwise rugged beauty.

A three member Austrian expedition, climbed it first time in 1968. They set their Camp 1 at 4800 meters. Big crevasses, inclement weather and deep snow is recorded between Camp 1 & 2. It was from camp 3 that the party was able to reach the peak which it termed as a "Big summit plateau".

These days some expeditions also managed their summit even from camp 2. Its quiet a popular peak among the climbers from Europe & Japan and last year there were three expeditions on Diran.
