The French skiers Carole Chambaret, Tiphaine Duperier and Boris Langenstein have caused a sensation with what is defined as the first complete descent on skis from the splendid peak of Laila Peak.Situated between the Chogolisa and the Masherbrum

Masherbrum, also known as "K-1" is not quite like Everest or K-2, but its meters of elevation convert to 25,659 feet, an awesome mountain that sits among the highest, steepest, and most rugged mountains I have ever seen.
If we continued north into that valley we would come to the Masherbrum
peak, located in the Ghanche District of Gilgit Baltistan.
