The first ascent by Hermann Buhl in 1953 marked a historic achievement, but the mountain’s challenging terrain has also witnessed its share of tragic expeditions. As we tread the trails towards the Base Camp, we follow in the footsteps of these legendary mountaineers, connecting with the spirit of exploration that defines this iconic region.
