Gasherbrum III is 6th highest peak in Pakistan and ranking 15th in World. It was the highest unclimbed peak upto 1974, before a polish ladies expedition, under the leadership of Mrs. Wanda Rutkiewics, climbed it on the 11th August, 1975. The leader, along with Alison Chadwick, Janusz Onyszkiewicz and K. Zdzitowiecki, reached the top. The slightly higher Gasherbrums I and II are 8000rs, and Gasherbrum III is much more impressive than its closest neighbor.
