Rakaposhi (7788-M)

Rakaposhi (7788)-Haramosh Hramosh (7419) are a sub range of the Karakoram range. They are located in Nagar Gilgit-Baltistan Pakistan. They are bordered by Barpu and the Chogo Lungma Glaciers in the north, by the Shigar River in the east, by the Gilgit and Indus Rivers in the south, and by the Hunza River in the west.
The two namesake peaks, Rakaposhi (25,551 ft) and Haramosh (24,308 ft), are among the largest in the world in terms of rise above local terrain, due to their positions near very low valleys. Rakaposhi rises dramatically above a bend in the Hunza River, forming the western anchor of the range, while Haramosh stands on the north side of the Indus River, in the south-central portion of the range.
Rakaposhi is  27th highest in the world and 12th highest in Pakistan, but it is more popular for its beauty than its rank might suggest., it is one of the magnificent pyramids in the world. The peak can be climb from all sides. Dominating the horizon it is constantly visible from   Karakoram Highway. The scene from Hunza is awesome and beyond admirable. Its perpetual glacier adds thrill of delight that belongs to the beauty of Hunza.
