Diran Peak (7266m) has a reputation for its treacherous storms and avalanches. Sitting very closed to the Rakaposhi and Haramosh massive, which surrounded by Minapin Barpu Boulter glacier, it offers a panoramic view of the Hunza valley.

In 1968 three members of Austrian Expedition climbed Diran. They found Hidden crevasses and high snow Domes on the Northwest ridge. In 1964 another Austrian Expedition tried to get on the summit from Northwest face but couldn’t succeed, due to bad weather.

Technically it is known to be difficult because of ice walls and hidden crevasses and its soft snow fields. Approach Gilgit- Minapin – Hapaken. Gullies base camp Boulter Glacier.
