A three days walk from Askole Village will bring you to the
base of Latok and Orge Peaks. The Base camp at 4200m is pretty green and with
plenty of fresh water, shapes like a soccer. Latok Group can also be reach
from Panmah Glacier, Nobande Sobande Glacier.
Latok I is 7145m, Latok II is 7108m (a recent Italian
expedition surveyed the Latok peaks and measured Latok II higher than Latok
I), Latok III 6940m, Latok IV 6456m, Latok IV SE Ca6450m. The other peaks
close by are Choktoi 6166m, Baintha Brakk SE 6960m, 7285m middle, Orge Thumb,
Lukphila Brakk 5500m, Spaldang 5590m, Biacherahi Towers 5900m.
The shortest route to Latok peaks can be reach from Biafo
Glacier. The Ho Bluk, on the right bank of the Biafo Glacier is said to be the
highest grazing land. The environment here is pleasant. This is also the
grazing ground for Brown Baer and Himalayan Ibex.
Latok peaks are mixture of ice and rock climbing. Not all of
Latok Peaks faces is climb, there is plenty of opportunity for adventure
lovers to come and make their first ascent. In 1999the Huber brothers made the
second ascent on IV south 6450m in one day.
